WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE ?
Acupuncture is an ancient and complete form of medicine dating back over 5,000 years. Originally it was used for prevention of illness and disease. It addresses the meridian or energy systems of the body with the use of very fine needles. It assists the body through these energy lines to bring about balance and harmony throughout. This enables and assists the body to heal itself and is based on the premise that in a healthy body there is no room for disease. Your body knows what it needs to do to get well and the placing of the needles gives it a helping hand and a chance to re-balance. Moxa which is a herb that is burnt on the end of a needle can also be used. This helps to tonify, warm and strengthen the whole system. Many conditions are treatable with Acupuncture.
WHY JAPANESE STYLE?
The form of Acupuncture used in our clinic targets the root cause and not just the symptom. This allows the body to come back into balance and effect its own healing at a very deep level. It is easier then to keep the body in balance and healthy. Especially if a regime of maintenance treatments is put into place, usually once a month is best. This is a form that uses finer needles, and a deep diagnostic approach. It is gentle enough for children to be treated as well. Patients often report feeling deeply relaxed after a treatment.
WHAT DOES IT TREAT?
