Acupuncture is a time-honoured medicine with at least 2000 years of life which makes it one of the oldest and most long-standing health care systems in the world.
Primarily, treatment involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles into specific sites (acupuncture points) along the body’s meridians to clear energy blockages and encourage the normal flow of ‘qi’ through the individual. The methods include needling, moxibustion, cupping, laser therapy, electro-stimulation and massage, in order to balance the body function.
