What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a system of healing based on the principles of traditional Chinese medicine and involves the stimulation of specific locations on the body, called acupuncture points. Chinese acupuncture generally achieves this through the use of needles, heat and pressure
What does Acupuncture Treat?
When we ask such a question, we tend to be thinking about specific clinical conditions like ‘asthma’ or ‘ colitis’. Acupuncture, at least within the framework of Traditional Oriental Medicine, focuses primarily on the person, and secondarily on the illness.
What can you expect after the first treatment?
The treatment mechanism of acupuncture is to trigger the body’s own regulating and healing responses. Consequently it draws on one’s own energy reserves. It is therefore important that you come to a session well fed and rested.
