Acupuncture is an ancient therapy from China which involves the insertion of very fine needles at specific acupuncture points on the body. Acupuncture brings balance in the body’s energies by strengthening areas that are deficient and draining those areas that have too much energy.
Acupuncture allows free flow of energy throughout the body so that the body can easily regulate itself. By removing energy blocks the body is once again able to regulate itself and be in harmony with itself and its environment. Acupuncture is quite a relaxing experience and it is suitable for all ages.
It is often used for controlling pain but it has many other benefits too, such as helping with stress, depression, asthma, digestive problems and menstrual problems. Only disposable sterile needles are used for treatment, which can last up to 20 – 30 minutes. A course of treatments is recommended depending on the severity and how long the illness has been there.
