Acupuncture works on the internal energy of the body, which is called Qi (Chi). Qi flows through the body via pathways called meridians which can be likened to electricity running through wires. Qi can vary in intensity from very strong to very subtle. It is along these meridians where various acupuncture points are located.
Fine acupuncture needles are used to target treatment areas, from muscle tension, stress and anxiety plus fertility problems. To maximise the effect of your treatment other techniques may be used including Chinese cupping, moxibustion and electro stimulation. Chinese herbs are also often used to assist your health and wellbeing. Disposable needles are used in every consultation for hygienic purposes.
