What is Acupuncture?
The stimulation of acupuncture points improves the flow of blood and energy, allowing nutrients to be transported to areas in need. This supports the body’s healing process and often relieves pain and aches.
How does Acupuncture work?
Acupuncture points are energy points on the meridians, which are pathways through which our Qi flows. In TCM theories, blockages or stagnation of Qi at these points may result in pain, tension and even poor health. By stimulating these Acupuncture points, it promotes both Qi and blood flow resulting in not only pain relief but also healing as blood flow brings nutrients to the affected area. Contrary to popular belief, Acupuncture is not painful as the Acupuncture needles are very thin. This is a desirable option for patients as our physicians will use needles for both localised treatment and distant needles to correct the underlying body constitution and correct imbalances.
Acupuncture commonly help alleviate the below symptoms:
• Pain management and inflammation – Arthritis, Back/Knee Pain, Headaches/Migraine, Muscle Aches
