Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese Medicine
technique originating over 3,000 years ago, making it one of the oldest recorded health care treatments
in the world. Acupuncture is primarily used as a medicine-free pain-relief treatment for several chronic
and acute conditions, such as Lower back Pain , Neck Pain, osteoarthritis, and migraines.Treatment involves the insertion of multiple fine, single-use needles into
specific Acupuncture points throughout the body.
These needles placed in the body with appropriate
is said to bring the energy flow of the body back into balance. Pressure, heat, or electrical current may be
applied to further enhance the effects. Traditional Chinese Medicine discusses these Acupuncture points
along the body’s energy pathways (called meridians) and these being used to clear energy blockages to
full flow of energy (called chi) throughout the body. Releasing blocked chi in the
body can invoke its natural healing response through various psychological systems.
Using their understanding of Acupuncture points and how they are related to the condition of the human body, your acupuncturist will discuss with you and assess your issue to recommend treatments that will both address the immediate symptoms, and the underlying cause of the problem.
Clinical studies show that Acupuncture can provide beneficial effects to the nervous system, immune system, cardiovascular system, and digestive system. From a modern medical perspective, Acupuncture stimulates various systems of your body by creating tiny, non- invasive injury points with each needle, sending a signal to the body to respond by increasing circulation to the areas. This encourages healing and modulates pain response.
This technique provides benefits to a wide range of conditions, such as:
Everyone responds differently to acupuncture, some people may feel relaxed or tired, while others will feel energetic and excited. Some people will notice an immediate improvement, while for others it can take several treatments before feeling better. As such, it is difficult to discuss the on-going cost of Acupuncture treatment until after you have had a session or two.Each practitioner will have their own fee structure, so we encourage you to check with your provider directly before making an appointment.

Typically, an initial consult with an Acupuncture practitioner will start with your health history. This is to provide our specialist with a well-rounded view of your overall health to help them with finding the underlying cause of your issue or injury. They may then examine your tongue’s shape, colour, and coating, and check your pulse. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is believed that subtle nuances in the tongue can provide insight into the condition of the rest of your body.
Once your acupuncturist has determined the correct procedure/s required to address your particular condition, they will lay you down on a comfortable massage table and begin inserting the small needles to stimulate the appropriate acupressure points on your body. Most patients feel little to no discomfort from the fine needles. Your acupuncturist will then ask you to lie still for a period usually between 10
and 30 minutes as your body responds to the therapy.
Following your treatment, you may feel happy and relaxed, tired, notice some changes in your eating and sleeping patterns, or experience no changes at all. Acupuncture treatment works differently for everyone, so it is important to monitor any changes to your body and your condition after your appointment.
