Acupuncture is the insertion of very fine, sterile needles into specific points on the body to create an expected physiological response. With classical origins based in China, Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been utilised for over 3000 years.

Acupuncture and TCM is based on the idea of ‘Qi’ or Energy. Qi flows through the body’s invisible meridians, and an imbalance in these systems can result in sickness, pain or disharmony. Acupuncture and TCM modalities (Moxibustion, Cupping, Guasha, Chinese Herbs, Tai Chi, Qi Gong and Massage) can be used to correct the flow of Qi and restore the body’s natural energy balance.

Acupuncturists assess a patient’s condition and determine the treatment principle and strategy needed to stimulate the body into balance. Each treatment is individually tailored to the patient for their specific needs.
