What is acupuncture

  • Acupuncture is a component of the health care system of China that can be traced back at least 2,500 years. The general theory of acupuncture is based on re-balancing the patterns of energy flow (Qi) through the body that are essential for health.
  • This is done by inserting sterilized, stainless-steel needles (that are as fine as a human hair) into specific points located near or on the surface of the skin which have the ability to alter various biochemical and physiological condition, in order to treat a wide variety of illnesses.
  • Disruptions of this flow are believed to be responsible for disease. Acupuncture may correct imbalances of flow at identifiable points close to the skin.
  • Traditional Chinese Medicine views a person as an energy system in which body and mind are unified, each influencing and balancing the other. Unlike Western medicine which attempts to isolate and separate a disease from a person, Chinese Medicine emphasizes a holistic approach that treats the whole person.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How do I feel during and after treatment?

  • The needles used are extremely fine and a skilled acupuncturist will cause minimum of pain. Normally, the insertion of the needles is not felt as they enter the skin. When the needles reach the correct points, there may be a feeling of soreness, heaviness or numbness. Most patients feel very relaxing, some patients even sleep during treatment. Occasionally the original symptoms worsen temporarily. These symptoms are nothing to worry about since they are generally indications that your body is trying to achieve a proper balance.

Is Acupuncture safe?

  • Acupuncture is safe when practised by a qualified practitioner. We use single use disposable needles. They are used once and discarded in the sharp containers, preventing biohazards and contamination.
  • Occasionally a small bruise may occur at the site of the needle insertion but this is not usually painful and will clear in a few days.

Can I be treated needleless?

  • Needless treatments are available, such as TuiNa(Chinese Traditional Massage), Chinese herbs, acupressure, moxibustion, cupping and magnetic.
