Acupuncture is a system of medicine in it’s own right, that lends to an explanation of behaviour of the human body when not in balance. In Western Medicine this can be described as ‘disease’, ‘illness’, ‘sickness’. In acupuncture, we say that it is ‘a pattern’, based upon how the energy of the body is working or indeed under duress.

The beauty of this system is it’s based upon harmony or balance, so it accounts for the physical, the mental, the emotional and the spirit of the person receiving treatment.
Treatment is provided by the use of finely honed needles, as fine as 0.013mm needles. Points in the body are selected by your registered acupuncturist once a pattern of behaviour or diagnosis is established. Each treatment is immediately effective, as once a needle is in, your energy system otherwise known as ‘Qi’ is accessed.
