How does Acupuncture work

TCM explains that health is the result of a harmonious balance of the complementary extremes of yin and yang of the life force known as Qi, pronounced “chi.” TCM believes that illness is the consequence of an imbalance of these forces.

According to TCM, Qi flows through meridians in the human body. These meridians and energy flows are accessible through acupuncture points in the body. Inserting needles into these points with appropriate combinations will bring the energy flow back into balance.

Anti-Ageing Acupuncture

Ageing is a process we all face as humans. For centuries, and more so now, anti ageing treatments are at the forefront for many. Chinese Medicine for anti-ageing including anti-ageing acupuncture has been used for centuries as a holistic anti-ageing treatment to keep you looking younger in spirit, mind and body.

Pain Management

The ancient art of acupuncture has been used in Asia for centuries to treat many conditions and relieve pain. It's now being used in the United States and other Western countries to ease everything from low back pain, to nerve pain (such as painful shingles rashes), to headaches, fibromyalgia, and menstrual cramps — and more.

Traditional Chinese acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely fine needles into the skin at specific "acupoints." This may relieve pain by releasing endorphins, the body's natural pain-killing chemicals, and by affecting the part of the brain that governs serotonin, a brain chemical involved with mood.

In Chinese acupuncture, the acupuncturist may turn or twirl the needles slightly or apply heat or electrical stimulation to enhance the effects.
