Acupuncture

Acupuncture is part of traditional Chinese medicine and involves the insertion of very fine, sterile needles into carefully selected points on the body to achieve a therapeutic outcome.

 

Sometimes, for reasons such as physical or emotional stress, injury, poor diet, disrupted sleep or other lifestyle factors, our body’s self-healing ability becomes compromised. Acupuncture helps to restore correct function of your body's systems, relieve pain, facilitate healing and get you back to enjoy life once again. It is also useful in preventing future illnesses from arising in the first place. This is actually how the Chinese have been using acupuncture for thousands of years.  

When performed by a qualified and experienced practitioner, acupuncture provides a safe and effective therapy for a long list of health complaints. An increasing number of clinical studies are not only confirming the positive effects of acupuncture on health but are also demonstrating that it can work safely and effectively alongside conventional medical care.

The World Health Organisation lists 91 conditions for which acupuncture has been proven to be an effective therapeutic treatment. These include:

 

  • Headaches and facial pain

  • Lower back, neck and shoulder pain

  • Digestive disorders

  • Menstrual pain

  • Joint pain, including rheumatoid arthritis

  • Nausea and vomiting, including morning sickness

  • Respiratory issues, including asthma

  • Postoperative pain

  • Infertility (male and female)

  • Cancer pain and chemotherapy side effects
