Acupuncture is a holistic treatment that adjusts and balances the body to improve circulation, relax the body and improve general health. Acupuncture is used to treat a wide variety of conditions from headaches, stress and fatigue to digestive issues, pain in muscles and joints. Tiny needles are inserted into specific points across the body. These acupuncture points were first mapped out in China over 2000 years ago. The points were identified as result of palpation of the body and have since been shown to have remarkable similarities in placement to the fascia in the body.
The number of acupuncture treatments required depends on the seriousness of a condition, how long you have had it and on your lifestyle and general health. As part of the treatment you will also be offered lifestyle and dietary advice to support your recovery. Acupuncture can be used to treat specific complaints, to boost energy and well-being, and to encourage relaxation and sleep. Acupuncture treatment is also sometimes supplemented with moxibustion (a herb used to warm points), massage and cupping.
