What is medical acupuncture?
  • Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine stainless steel needles in the skin.
  • It works by stimulating the body to produce its own pain and stress-relieving chemicals, (endorphins and exytocin).
  • It may also promote sleep and encourage a sense of well being by stimulating melatonin and release of serotonin.
  • Acupuncture also stimulates nerve fibres to block out pain signals  and help to reduce the sensitivity of tender points in the body.
  • A typical acupuncture session last between 15-30minutes
Does acupuncture hurt?

Acupuncture works by stimulating special Acupressure points that are all part of an interconnected network that spans across your entire body. This stimulation helps restore the flow of energy (Qi) and blood through your body, and this helps your body absorb nutrients and remove toxins. Keeping your Meridian System clear helps you keep your body functioning properly, and a functioning body is a healthier body.

Does acupuncture have side effects?

Acupuncture do not create side effects; it is safe, natural and effective.
