Acupuncture is an ancient healing therapy used to restore the balance of health in body and mind. It is a branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine – a medical system that originated in China over 2,500 years ago and which has been embraced throughout the world due to its proven effectiveness.
Acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely fine sterile disposable needles into points on the body’s surface to maintain and restore the balance of health in body and mind.
Much research shows that acupuncture causes a release of endorphins, the body’s naturally produced painkillers. Research also indicates that acupuncture causes beneficial effects to the body’s immune and endocrine systems.
We find this treatment offers a natural approach, without the use of drugs, to relieve pain, reduce stress, increase immune function and promote a deep sense of well being.
