Acupuncture is a gentle medical system that is used to diagnose and treat illness, prevent disease and improve well being. It originated in China more than 3,000 years ago and due to it’s proven effectiveness has been embraced throughout the world.
Chinese Medicine seeks to treat the whole person. It involves the insertion of very fine, pre-sterilised, disposable needles at specific points on the body’s surface to help restore health on a physical, psychological and emotional level.
Acupuncture can be used alone or combined with Western medicine, or with other forms of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) such as herbal medicine, moxibustion (heat treatment), Qi Qong (therapeutic exercise) and Tui Na (Chinese massage)
