What is Acupunture?

Acupuncture is the most long-standing drug-free healthcare system in the world dating back over five thousand years.

Acupuncture is the art of inserting tiny hair-thin needles into acupuncture points on the body to stimulate the body’s Qi to relieve pain or for therapeutic purposes. The body’s QI refers to the energy used to move our arms and legs, for our organs to perform their functions of breathing, pumping blood and digesting food and for our brain to think..

Benefits of Acupunture

This stimulation sends signals to the nervous and immune systems telling it how to stop pain and how to resolve disease processes

Acupuncture will treat not only the specific health complaint but your wellbeing in general. Treatments are designed to meet the particular needs of each individual

According to ancient Chinese, vital energy (chi) travels through your body along pathways called meridians. When you are in good health the flow of chi is smooth and uninterrupted, but illness can disturb this flow.  Acupuncture stimulates specific points along the meridians to restore the flow of chi and return the patient to full health

Research in China has shown that:

• Stimulates lymph production
• Stimulates red and white blood cells
• No chemical residues
• Produces endorphins and serotonin (mood enhancers)
• Reduces inflammation
• Regulates blood pressure
• Regulates hormones

The areas affected by this stimulation include:

• The brain
• The body's organs
• Muscles, nerves and tendons
• The skin
