Acupuncture is the oldest continually practiced system of professional medicine and is a safe and natural way to treat a wide range of health problems. Having taken a detailed patient history and made a diagnosis according to the principles of Chinese Medicine, the practitioner gently inserts very thin, single use, sterilized needles into specific acupuncture points on the body to balance the energy flow along the associated channel. Acupuncture can provide significant relief from many types of pain – such as headaches, back pain, sports injuries, osteo-arthritis, etc. Recent studies have found it to be superior to surgery in treating low back pain.
Acupuncture is very effective at treating a wide range of internal medicine conditions including: Asthma, Sinusitis, Digestive disorders, Chronic Fatigue, Insomnia, Anxiety and Depression and is also widely used in the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. It is particularly effective in the treatment of women’s health issues, including menstrual disorders, menopausal problems and fertility enhancement. In addition it improves overall health and immune response.
