Acupuncture is the procedure of inserting and manipulating needles into various points on the body to relieve pain or for therapeutic purposes.
Acupuncture is one of the oldest recorded forms of medicine, having been used in China for over 3,000 years!
Research has shown that acupuncture stimulates the brain to produce endorphins (which are natural pain relieving chemicals.) These assist the body to heal itself and gain pain relief. There is increasing scientific evidence to support the effects of acupuncture.
Unsurprisingly, this is the most common question asked by patients when needles are used! Our therapists are trained to maintain the strictest hygiene levels and will only use pre-sterilised, disposable needles.
When inserted the fine needles give rise to a sensation which should only be a temporary mild discomfort at the most.
At times a more intense sensation is experienced. This is thought to be a positive indicator of the movement of energy at the acupuncture point, and is nothing to worry about.
Acupuncture can help you overcome and manage a wide range of symptoms, including:
