Acupuncture is an ancient and fascinating healing therapy, which has evolved and developed over thousands of years. There is evidence suggesting that it is the oldest form of any complete medical treatment still in use in the present day.
A treatment typically involves the careful insertion of extremely fine needles into specific acupuncture points that are located in particular areas of the body called the meridian channels.
Acupuncture is a very safe, gentle and very effective method of stimulating the human body’s natural healing ability.
Acupuncture is commonly used to treat many symptoms and illnesses. It can also assist in preventing ill health by balancing the body, promoting both physical and mental well-being. Some of its most common uses include pain relief, mental health issues, such as anxiety and panic attacks, Promotion of fertility, sporting performance and the promotion of general good health and over all wellness.
