Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and to improve functioning.
This is achieved by inserting hair-thin sterilised needles into pre-determined points along the body in order
to re-balance and restore health and well-being.

Acupuncture is a component of traditional Chinese medicine that originated in China over 3,000 years
ago. It is a complex system of medicine that is used to treat, diagnose and in some cases prevent
illnesses. In the past 2,000 years, more people have been successfully treated with acupuncture than
with all other health modalities combined. Its results have been recognised throughout Europe, Asia
and America and it is therefore fast becoming the preferred method of healing for a number of key
complaints. Acupuncture is low risk and can be used in conjunction with many other therapies including
Western Medicine, Osteopathic, Physiotherapy and Chiropractic. However it is important to inform all
practitioners and doctors of concurrent treatments.

Acupuncture can also be used to promote general well-being and as a preventative method to illness. It can increase energy, motivation and uplift spirits by relaxing the mind and body.
