Acupuncture

One of the greatest advantages of acupuncture in comparison to prescriptions
is the absence of serious side effects.

 

What is acupuncture?

 

Acupuncture is a traditional form of medicine that originated in China over 3000 years ago. It's theory is based on the flow of energy in the body known as qi. Qi is the life force of the body and when qi is disrupted, a person will become ill and encounter pain.  Acupuncture restores the flow of qi, easing pain and curing illness.  Qi is distributed within pathways known as meridians. Each meridian has its own set of acu-points  which are on the skin they have a lower resistance to the passage of electricity than the surrounding skin. Using these points the acupuncturist is able to influence health and sickness by stimulating these points with needles. 
 

 
How is it done?
 
All acupuncture needles are individually wrapped, sterile and thrown away after each treatment. The needles are stainless steel, sterile, very fine, flexible and rounded but sharp at the tip. they are inserted into the skin at specific points along meridians on the body to achieve a therapeutic effect. No drug is injected. The needles alone create the beneficial effects of acupuncture returning the body to a state of balance.
 
What will it feel like?
 
Needling sensations are unique to each client. For many, a dull, heavy, or aching feeling occurs when the needle is correctly placed. This is referred to as de Qi. Acupuncture does not hurt, a lot of clients compare the sensation with a mosquito bite. The needles are left in place for 20-30 minutes, and the needles may be manipulated to strengthen or reduce the flow of Qi.  Many people find they can fully relax or even fall asleep once all the needles are placed.
 
What are the benefits?
 
Acupuncture is used to improve mood and energy, reduce or relieve pain and to maintain optimal health in the absence of illness. It is safe and effective and is often successfully used as an alternative to medications or even surgery.
