Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a primary system of medicine that has developed over thousands of years. Its aim is to restore balance and harmony to the body providing effective treatment for acute and chronic health conditions, musculoskeletal disorders and a wide range of conditions listed by the World Health Organization. Acupuncture and TCM works by boosting the body’s own self- healing mechanism to reduce pain and inflammation, balancing hormones and regulating immune function to maintain optimum health.
WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE?
Acupuncture involves stimulation of specific acupoints in the body and is performed with ultra-fine, single use sterilised needles which are placed in specific points around the body using the body's natural energy (Qi) to unblock and regulate neurological and chemical pathways (TCM meridians) creating a feeling of relaxation, promoting repair, balance and wellness.
