Acupuncture is a powerfully effective and naturally relaxing form of medicine. It can benefit you whether you have a concern or not. If you are experiencing stress or just want to maintain optimum health, acupuncture can help you to cope better. It is one of the oldest, safest, and most effective systems of medicine. It is recognised by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a viable means used to treat a wide range of disorders, prevent disease, and improve well being.

Acupuncture is based on the concept of Qi, or 'vital energy' that flows throughout the body. Our health depends on the flow of Qi to be smooth and balanced. Energy flows may become blocked or depleted due to physical, emotional, or environmental factors. These imbalances can manifest as pain, lack of energy, lowered immune system, or illness. Through the use of acupuncture we can re-establish the flow of Qi, to effectively relieve pain, restore energy and stimulate the body's own natural healing ability.

Very fine pre-sterilised, single-use, disposable needles are inserted at specific acupuncture points along the body's meridians to help clear blockages and encourage the normal flow of Qi. Acupuncture works along nerve pathways, promoting the release of endorphins, cortisols and hormones which assist in relieving stress, inflammation, and pain, thereby resulting in a general sense of wellbeing and promotion of self-healing. Acupuncture is a holistic therapy that treats not only the symptoms, but also the underlying cause of illness.
