why acupuncture?

Acupuncture seeks to restore the flow of positive energy throughout your body

what is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is part of the system of healthcare known as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The principal behind TCM is that energy flows through channels known as meridians throughout the body. When any of these channels become blocked we experience pain or a feeling of being unwell. The World Health Organisation ( WHO) recognises that Acupuncture treats a wide range of common health conditions.

how it works?

Acupuncture treatment involves the use of fine sterile needles inserted at specific points to clear the blockage and encourage healing. Acupuncture can compliment many western medical treatments
