What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is an ancient system of healing developed over
thousands of years as part of traditional medicine in China,
Japan and other Eastern countries. It is one of the oldest,
most alternative procedures in the world! It is part of the
discipline of traditional Chinese medicine. It involves the
use of very fine, sterile, disposable needles inserted into
energetic points on the body. This stimulates the body's energy
to assist in the healing process. In Chinese Medicine, this
energy flow is called Qi/Chi, pronounced chee, Qi provides
the capacity to think, feel, work, and most importantly, to
heal. This embraces many other forms of healing, quite apart
from acupuncture, for example Chinese herbal medicine.
Practitioners of Chinese Medicine use acupuncture, herbs and
other healing modalities to "coax" the innate healing abilities
within every person to help healing occur naturally. It is
effective in many conditions which have often not responded
well to conventional approaches. An Acupuncturist aims to
evaluate your whole body and not just the symptoms that bother you .
Does acupuncture hurt?
Because acupuncture needles are very fine, most of the time
there is no pain when they are inserted. You may feel a
brief pinch as the needle is inserted or tightness around the needle.
How safe is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is extremely safe. We only use new, sterile,
individually wrapped disposable needles with every patient.
