Ideally combined with Chiropractic Care or Massage Therapy
Acupuncture and Cupping is a holistic health treatment that has been developed through refining thousands of years of clinical experience and research. The discipline is based on the Traditonal Chinese Medicine philosophy that there are energetic channels existing inside the body that can affect our internal organs and structures.
In order to tap into these channels, our skilled acupuncturists insert sterilised needles into pressure points within the body, which in turn affect nerve impulses and restore energy flow. Through restoring energy flow, this can help treat a number of health conditions ranging from insomnia to infertility.
- Activate natural pain relievers found in the body
- Improve circulation and promotes healthy functioning of blood vessels
- Aid the regulation of hormones and the release of neuro-transmitters
- Stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system to relieve stress
