Acupuncture is part of a traditional Chinese medicine approach to health care that has been developed in China over thousands of years. Acupuncture works by triggering nerve points under the skin. The connected nature of the nervous system means that these points can stimulate other regions of the body to perform beneficial tasks to aid in recovery and healing. This technique uses the body’s internal mechanisms to assist in balancing the whole, and can greatly assist in achieving a sense of balance and relaxation.
Acupuncture is effective in:
- treating pain and musculosketal problems
- healing after trauma or surgery
- treating a range of acute and chronic conditions
- treating the underlying cause of disease.
