WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE?
AND WHY ARE PEOPLE
Acupuncture is an ancient healing art originating from China over 2000 years ago, involving inserting fine needles into acupoints along the meridians of the body to promote healing and restore balance to the body.
With no lasting harmful side effects, Acupuncture has become the go-to treatment for many seeking effective relief from pain, both acute and chronic, mental and physical.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Acupuncture has been shown on MRI scans to stimulate positive, measurable effects in brain activity and an ability to alter neurochemical reactions. Moreover, Acupuncture functions by stimulating local micro-circulation and blood flow to the central nervous system and decreasing inflammatory reactions, overall creating a deeply calming effect on your mood whilst stimulating your body's natural reaction to heal and repair itself.
Using a Traditional Chinese medical approach means that we can look at the same problem with a fresh perspective and find innovative solutions to otherwise un-treatable problems. Acupuncture can be an indispensable tool in many conditions by kickstarting and facilitating optimum conditions for healing, healthy flow and a happy and balanced mind.
