Acupuncture is a professional, nationally recognised health treatment developed through refining thousands of years of clinical experience and research.
Acupuncture uses fine, single-use needles to stimulate your body's self-healing functions to return you to optimal health. Treatment with acupuncture is comfortable and relaxing and can effectively treat various health issues from pain to insomnia and infertility.
Acupuncture philosophy is based on the understanding that good health depends on an abundant and free-flowing energy source.
Acupuncture meridians mirror the anatomical pathways of the nervous system. It can stimulate your body to produce energy more efficiently or redirect circulation to bring you back to a balanced state.
This alleviates your symptoms and corrects the underlying problem that led to them in the first place instead of just treating the presenting symptom.
For example, suppose an 80 years old lady is experiencing tinnitus. In that case, it is often associated with Kidney as it manifests in the ears. Acupuncturists will work on the kidney channel to nourish kidney essence and quite the tinnitus.
A Chinese Medicine practitioner may also use Chinese herbs to strengthen and support the healing.
