Acupuncture exists within the framework of Traditional Chinese Medicine, a system of healing that dates back thousands of years.
There are many different forms of acupuncture, though traditionally it consists of inserting fine, sterile and single-use needles into specific acupuncture points in the skin along energy pathways, or meridians, to clear blocked pathways and encourage a healthy flow of energy, or Qi, throughout the body.
Along with our knowledge and extensive experience with traditional Chinese acupuncture, we also provide Laser Acupuncture therapy, using low energy lasers instead of needles to influence acupuncture points.
What are the benefits of Acupuncture
Acupuncture is used to alleviate pain and to treat various physical and mental conditions. As a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine it has several core benefits.
Firstly, it is a form of drug-free pain relief that may appeal to those patients who feel trapped in the pharmaceutical industry carousel. Secondly, it has been shown to help in the treatment of acute and chronic ailments, providing relief to long-time sufferers who felt they had exhausted all treatment options. Thirdly, through taking a holistic approach to health and wellbeing, acupuncture seeks to address the root cause of ill-health, not simply treat the symptoms. Finally, it assists in restoring health as much as preventing further ill-health, promoting energy flow around the body and a sense of balance.
