What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is the practice of inserting solid fine needles into specific body points to improve, restore and maintain health and well-being.
What are Acupuncture points?
Acupuncture points (also ‘acupoints’) are places on the skin that have a lower resistance to the passage of electricity than the surrounding skin and are part of a network of points that were mapped centuries ago by the Chinese. Most are found along meridians.
How does Acupuncture work?
Acupuncture restores normal functions by stimulating certain points on meridians in order to free up the flow of Blood and Qi. Acupuncture is used to encourage natural healing, improve mood and energy, reduce or relieve pain and improve function of affected areas of the body. Other methods, including moxibustion, cupping, laser therapy, electro-stimulation and massage, can be used to stimulate acupoints in order to re-establish the flow of Blood and Qi.
What are the benefits of Acupuncture?
Acupuncture has the following benefits:
- provides drug-free pain relief
- effectively treats a wide range of acute and chronic ailments
- treats the underlying cause of disease and illness as well as the symptoms
- provides an holistic approach to the treatment of disease and illness, linking body, mind and emotions
- assists in the prevention against disease and illness as well as the maintenance of general well-being
Is Acupuncture safe?
It is safe and effective and is often successfully used as an alternative to medications or even surgery. The needles are sterile and disposable, that means every needle is used only once and is then safely disposed of. Treatment sites are swabbed with alcohol for disinfection before the insertion of a needle.
A treatment from a properly trained and qualified Acupuncturist is the best guarantee for a safe and effective treatment.
