Acupuncture is an ancient practice that originated in China; it has been used as a natural holistic healing approach for over 2,000 years. It has been used as a treatment for a wide number of health conditions. Acupuncture helps to enforce the integration of Qi through energy pathways throughout the body to help not only the mind but also the body to balance itself.
Qi or energy flow can be interrupted in a number of ways; such as; poor diet and physical trauma as well as being overworked. When our energy is being block is can manifest as pain, hot or cold sensations or even colour changes to our body. By looking at these manifestations we can then determine the underlying cause and carefully select the appropriate acupuncture points and channels to focus on within the treatment.
Acupuncture works is through the placement of extremely fine, sterile, disposable metal needles focusing on specific acupuncture points along the body’s energy pathways to aid in triggering a response from the body to clear any blockages and encourage the normal flow of energy, or Qi, through the body. Acupuncture is a minimally invasive approach that helps to stimulate nerve rich areas of the skins surface; you will feel no pain or very minimal pain from the hair thin needles.
