Acupuncture

Treatment

Acupuncture utilizes the ancient tradition of Chinese medicine and the belief that organ systems are connected through out the body in pathways called meridians. Acupuncture needles can be inserted into specific areas along the meridians. Shoulder pain for example can be treated by acupuncture, or needles can  be placed in accordance with the meridian pathways to support fertility. These meridians either bring energy too, or away from, the organ affected.

HOW CAN ACUPUNCTURE HELP YOU?

Acupuncture is well recognized within the medical profession for the treatment of pain, sports injuries, fertility, and many chronic conditions. We also offer cosmetic acupuncture, a treatment therapy that slows down ageing and rejuvenates the skin. Sessions are usually given once a week over a series of weeks.
