What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a complex medical system that is used to diagnose and treat illness, prevent disease and improve well-being. It is the world's largest drug-free healthcare therapy. Acupuncture is one of the main treatment therapies of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It is compatible with Conventional medicine. It has been practiced in China for thousands of years and has been embraced throughout the world due to its proven effectiveness.
Acupuncture can be used alone or combined with other forms of TCM, such as Moxibustion, Cupping, Electro-acupuncture & Ear Acupuncture
How does it work?
Acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely fine sterile disposable needles into predetermined points on the body's surface to restore health.
Points are chosen based on a TCM diagnosis, which takes into consideration all aspects of the person, so treatment is specific to each individual.
Acupuncture is effective because it aims to treat both the symptoms as well as the underlying causes. It can also treat conditions that are not easily explained in western medicine.
Is it safe?
It is very safe. All acupuncture needles are high quality single use, pre-sterilised, disposable needles. The area selected for needling is also sterilised before insertion.
