What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a system of Chinese holistic medicine . It is a form of drug free healing with its own unique system of diagnosis and disease identification. Stimulation of precise acupuncture points with very fine stainless steel pins, evokes a known physiological reaction. This assists the body’s own defensive and self healing systems, thus promoting the healing process and maintaining good health.

Chinese Medicine is a widely sought therapy for many conditions which do not respond well to Western medical drugs or surgery. Acupuncture can be used to heal and correct specific complaints, or as a system to fine tune imbalances within the body which may not be so obvious. Many patients interested in long-term health use acupuncture to “stay well”.

Does acupuncture hurt?

Many people have a fear of needles due to their association with injections they have received in the past. However, acupuncture needles are extremely fine and do not inject anything that could cause pain or irritation. Patients often experience sensations of heaviness, numbness, or aching. Most report a sense of relaxation or euphoria during or after treatment. For those who are afraid of needles, laser acupuncture is available.

Only single use, sterile disposable needles are used in this centre so that there is no possibility of disease transmission.
