Acupuncture is an ancient healing art still proving itself more than worthy in today’s healthcare arena. The therapy involves the insertion of fine needles at locations along the bodys energetic pathways. This application serves to regulate the bodys energy in order to overcome a plethora of ill-health symptoms.
Acupuncture provides benefit to a large scope of physical complaints and emotional disturbances.
Furthermore, it offers to maintain good health as preventative medicine. Acupuncture is one tool utilised in the practice of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine). Other tools are commonly employed to enhance the benefit during your treatment.
These may include moxibustion (heating therapy), cupping, ‘guasha’ (scraping therapy) and electro-acupuncture.
For children and absolute needle-phobics, a needle-less form of acupuncture point stimulation is employed. This is performed using a piezo-electric stimulator.
