This ancient art of healing involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points of the body. Acupuncture, along with chiropractic, works with the natural vital energies of the body to promote its ability to heal itself.
Is Acupuncture Safe?
Acupuncture needles are very fine, sterile, disposable, and FDA approved. Our practitioners are qualified and experienced in acupuncture.
How does Acupuncture Work?
Over thousands of years of practice, physicians have discovered a system of cyclic energy flowing in the human body along specific pathways called meridians.
Each meridian is associated with a particular physiological system and body organ. When the energy in the pathways blocked or obstructed, disease occurs.
The meridians communicate with the surface of the body at specific locations called acupuncture points. Needles inserted in these points influence the energy that flows to body organs. Acupuncture can also affect specific areas of pain associated with injury or trauma. A needle inserted near the area of overstrained muscle, tendon or nerve will increase the energy flow to that area, which reduces pain and accelerates the healing process.
Is Acupuncture Painful?
Acupuncture needles are very fine and flexible, about the size of a human hair.
They bear no resemblance to the needles used when receiving an injection. In most cases, insertion minimum of discomfort. Most clients find the treatments very calm and relaxing.
How many Treatments will I need?
The number of treatments will depend on the nature of the complaint, its severity, and how long it has been present.
Many conditions may be alleviated rapidly. Other, more chronic conditions will be relieved only with slow, steady progress. Acupuncture and Chiropractic therapies complement each other and can be integrated to offer optimal health care.
Acupuncture can help you with many conditions; either on its own or as a complementary approach to Chiropractic treatment.
Both the National Institutes for Health and The World Health Organisation recognise Acupuncture Therapy’s ability to treat over 43 commonly encountered clinical disorders.
Some conditions which are treated with acupuncture are:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Headache & Migraine
- Pregnancy care
- Facial paralysis
- Tiredness / Fatigue
- Stress & Anxiety
- Weight loss
