What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an extremely safe and effective medical system with has been used for thousands of years. It is used to promote and restore a person’s health and to reduce the likelihood of future ill health.

Acupuncture is the art of inserting very fine single use needles into specific points on the body to stimulate the body’s own natural healing abilities. Treatments are tailored to meet the particular needs of each individual and is something that can benefit people of all ages. Alongside acupuncture's stimulating effect, Saffron uses Chinese herbal medicine to nourish the body.

The benefits of acupuncture include: improved immune system, regulated hormones, increased energy, increased endorphins and serotonin (mood enhancers), reduced inflammation, relaxed muscles, regulated blood pressure and enhanced circulation.
