Acupuncture is an ancient system of healing which aims to balance a person's inner energy to promote good health and well-being. Fine sterile stainless steel needles are inserted into specific acupuncture points to bring about widespread benefits to a person's physical body and their general state of mind and emotions.
After an initial detailed case history lasting about 2 hours, the Acupuncturist will check a patient's wrist pulses and sometimes also their tongue. Treatment then starts on a weekly basis, with sterile needles being inserted as appropriate to create the desired changes in the patient's energy. Sometimes a process called moxibustion is used - with the skin being gently warmed by a traditional herbal preparation. The frequency of treatment decreases gradually as the patient starts to maintain any improvement.
Acupuncture can be used as a general treatment which may be beneficial to a wide range of conditions - for example anxiety, arthritis, asthma, back pain, circulatory problems, depression, high blood pressure, indeterminable aches and pains, infertility, menstrual and menopause problems, migraines, skin conditions, insomnia and many more.
It does more however, than cure symptoms, working more to restoring overall balance to make a person feel better from within.
