Traditional Chinese Acupuncture has been gaining more interest in recent years. It is used for treating specific health problems as well as for promoting general health and wellness.
Over time, acupuncture has gained worldwide acceptance in treating many conditions:
Neck and back ache
Stress and insomnia
Irritable bowel syndrome
Swelling during pregnancy
And many more
According to Chinese Acupuncture, Qi (chee) flows throughout out bodies running up and down meridians. These meridians are like highways that the energy flows through. This Qi protects us from disease and promotes well being. If this Qi stops or is disrupted then this change can lead to dysfunction or diseases.
Acupuncture needles are inserted into specific points along these meridians. The needles help to restore the Qi flow and thereby promote healing in the body.
More specifically, acupuncture can:
reduce pain, swelling and discomfort
stimulate general healing
boost the immune system
calm the body, reduce stress
Sterile disposable stainless steel needles are used in the clinic. Most people report that they did not feel the needles during the treatments.
Every person is unique therefore there is no set length of treatment or number of treatments.
