What is Acupuncture?
It is an important part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
It corrects qi and blood stagnation and therefore relieves pain. The aim of acupuncture is to help qi and blood flow harmoniously through the body, thus nourishing the body and bringing it back into balance.
The treatment uses very fine, sterile, disposable needles, which are inserted just below the surface of the skin. This does not cause pain, although you may feel a qi sensation. When the needles penetrate the skin, qi is stimulated. Stimulated qi will move, and blood will flow after qi.
It is a relaxing and painless therapy with a very low risk of side-effects, if any.
What are the conditions and problems acupuncture can help with?
It can be used to treat a wide range of conditions. It is often used in conjunction with other types of treatment.
