Acupuncture has been practiced in China for thousands of years. It involves the use of tiny, hair-like filiform needles that are inserted at certain points to help your body overcome illness, relieve pain and resist disease. Very specific points are carefully chosen for your particular problem. For example, to clear blocked Qi (vital energy) or Blood, improve the body’s energy, harmonise Qi, nourish Blood or balance Yin and Yang.
Your practitioner will then use subtle oriental energy techniques to direct the flow of energy throughout your body. Acupuncture needles are nothing like those used at the doctor’s surgery. They are only tenths of a millimetre in diameter, like a hair. At this Clinic, acupuncture treatment is virtually painless and is usually very relaxing. You may even fall asleep!
After an acupuncture treatment you will usually notice that painful areas feel loose and free and your whole body feels relaxed and light.
