In Chinese Medicine there are 14 main channels/meridians that flow Qi (energy) throughout the body.
A disruption or blockage in this innate flow can create imbalance in the way the body functions.
Each person has their own balances and imbalances, and acupuncture aims to correct imbalances by inserting fine needles into specific points on the body.
Acupuncture is an effective treatment for a huge array of problems, including poor energy, irregular menstrual cycles, hormonal imbalances, allergies and skin problems, headaches/migraines, digestion and detoxification, as well as infertility, stress and mood.
Traditional Chinese Medicine is a holistic method, taking into account your whole being, not just the condition/s that you are presenting with.
Our Acupuncturist, Sian, uses her knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine to analyse your symptoms, underlying patterns and provide the most effective treatment for your unique body.
An acupuncture treatment isn’t just about the needles. Sian’s treatments may involve other Traditional Chinese techniques such as moxibustion, cupping, gua sha (to improve circulation), electroacupuncture (involves a small electric current pulsed through acupuncture points) and tui na (Chinese remedial massage). Sian is always focused on self-empowerment, and her consultations may also include take-home stretches or exercises and TCM nutritional advice.
The quality and quantity of research into Acupuncture’s effectiveness is always increasing. As of February 2018, there were 10,039 studies registered in the Cochrane database, a high-quality independent healthcare evidence database. With an increasing amount of studies being published every year, Acupuncture is gaining the worldwide accreditation and reputation in the Western world that it has held for over 2,000 years in China.
We find Acupuncture and Naturopathy to perfectly compliment each other, and give our clients fast, effective, and long-lasting results.
