Having evolved over thousands of years, acupuncture is one of the oldest and most practiced medical modalities in the world.
Acupuncture is part of a complete therapeutic system within the framework of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Other modalities that fall under the umbrella of TCM include: cupping, guasha, moxibustion, herbal, dietary and lifestyle therapy. Acupuncture is an excellent compliment to almost any other treatment, including Western pharmaceutical, surgery, chiropractic, massage, osteopathy and physiotherapy.
Acupuncture is used to prevent and treat disease, relieve pain, balance mood, increase energy and improve overall health and wellbeing.
Research has shown that acupuncture is a safe and effective way to promote the body’s remarkable self-healing abilities, and with no side effects!
An acupuncture treatment involves the insertion and manipulation of flexible, hair-thin needles at very specific points on the body. Most patients find that an acupuncture treatment is deeply relaxing, both mentally and physically.
From indigestion to fertility, acupuncture can be used to treat a wide range of health concerns thanks to its ability to regulate the body’s self-healing mechanisms. Acupuncture has been officially recommended to treat over 100 conditions, according to the World Health Organization.
One of the greatest benefits of acupuncture is that it addresses each individual patient’s health concerns uniquely as specifically to that patient. Five people with the same complaint could all require different treatments.
Acupuncture looks at balancing the body as a whole; “Optimum health requires the mind, physical body and spirit to be in balance.”
