Acupuncture works to help maintain your body’s equilibrium. It involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body to regulate the flow of ‘qi’, your body’s vital energy.

According to Chinese Medicine, for a number of lifestyle and environmental reasons, qi can become disturbed, depleted or blocked, which can result in some symptoms of pain and illness.

In certain instances, traditional acupuncture can be an effective therapy to help restore balance and promote physical and emotional harmony.

During your first consultation, the acupuncturist will discuss your medical history with you, as well as general health, lifestyle and any previous injuries or operations.

The case history is very important for her to make a detailed diagnosis of your condition. Before treating you, she will explain her findings thoroughly and advise you how long it might take to get a satisfactory result.
