What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a treatment method under the umbrella of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). TCM is an Eastern approach to treat illnesses and dysfunction of the body. It is a holistic approach, it’s theory is based on regulating “Qi” or energy flow of our body to promote healing. When our body is injured there can be excessive or depleted flow of qi in certain areas. Therefore the acupuncturist treats conditions by harmonising the flow of qi back into balance. Acupuncture has proven to be effective in reducing pain and inflammation. Treatment methods of TCM includes acupuncture, cupping and moxabustion.
How does it work?
- Balances your Qi or energy flow by inserting thin needles to specific points on your body
