All acupuncturists are trained to use subtle diagnostic techniques that have been developed and refined for thousands of years. The focus is on you as an individual, not your illness, and all symptoms are seen in relation to each other. Treatment involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body to affect the flow of your body’s qi, or vital energy.
The needles are precisely located at points to connect with your body’s qi. After a detailed consultation points are decided which are right for you covering every aspect of your health and lifestyle.
Treatment is designed to affect your whole being as well as your symptoms so, as the condition being treated improves, you may notice other health problems resolve and an increased feeling of wellbeing.
The needles used in acupuncture are so fine that most people don’t feel them being inserted. It is normal to feel a mild tingle or dull ache as the needles may be adjusted. While the needles are in place most people feel deeply relaxed which can continue after they are removed.
A growing body of evidence-
Other people choose acupuncture when they can feel their bodily functions are out of balance, but they have no obvious diagnosis. And many have regular treatments because they find it so beneficial and relaxing.
