Acupuncture is a Chinese Qi based treatment. Qi is the vital energy that flows through us in channels, known as meridians. These meridians link parts of the body and all organs.
To restore and maintain health, this energy must flow freely and in balance.
If the flow of Qi is blocked or your body experiences stress (physical or emotional) the meridians may become unbalanced resulting in pain or illness.
Single use sterile fine needles are inserted into specific points along the meridians, to restore balance and to trigger the body’s natural healing response.
Blood flow is increased to the local area and the body’s natural pain relievers, endorphins, are released.
Acupuncture may be used to complement manual therapies to promote the body’s natural healing response.
