Restoring Qi to reduce stress, pain and much more
Based on the ancient principle of vital energy, also known as Qi, acupuncture is one of the oldest methods of healthcare in the world.
Your therapist will insert fine needles into the skin at very specific points, related to your current health concern. These needles stimulate sensory nerves, reduce blood pressure and increase our sensitivity to pain relieving endorphins.
Research into the efficacy of acupuncture is growing and there is now strong evidence that acupuncture works well for migraine prevention, headaches, lower back pain, knee osteoarthritis, allergic rhinitis, nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy or surgery as well as post-operative pain. Whilst the body of evidence is still growing, it is important to remember that acupuncture has many positive results for other health concerns too.
