Acupuncture
What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a treatment branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It employs the insertion of fine, solid-metal, needles into designated points on the body to regulate the client’s energy (Qi) flow. Disease and symptoms are primarily viewed as the result of poor, improper or obstructed Qi flow.

ACUPUNCTURE FAQs

TCM diagnosis differs from allopathic diagnosis in that it endeavours to determine the status of the body’s energies; where they are strong, weak, regulated and disordered. Acupuncture points are then selected and needled in an effort optimize Qi flow thereby addressing symptoms.

The act of targeted needling can facilitate enhanced pain control by positively affecting nerve response, muscle tension, blood circulation and restricted fascia. Additionally, thoughtful needling of acupuncture points can have positive effects on their vessels (meridians) and their respective functions. As such, acupuncture may be instrumental in improving sleep quality, increasing energy, improving digestion, mental clarity and stress management.
