Acupuncture is the practice of inserting very fine pre- sterilized needles into certain Acupuncture points of the body. The Ancient Chinese Doctors discovered that if you insert a needle into a certain point of the body it can have an effect on
your body’s Qi – body’s innate life force energy. By stimulating these points there can be remarkable changes and improvements in health. Acupuncture is very safe and should have no harmful side effects or complications
when practiced by a Registered Acupuncturist.
Chinese Herbal Medicine
Often Acupuncture treatments can be accompanied by the prescription of Chinese Medical Formulas. It is different to Western medicine whereby after a certain period of time when the condition is treated the formula does not need to
be taken anymore. It will be constantly tailored throughout the course of treatment to cater to the body as it heals.
Of course, if there are more complicated issues such as auto immune diseases or extremely chronic conditions the formula may need to be taken on going.
Cupping was developed at least 1000 years ago, it involves lighting a flame in a glass or a bamboo cup and quickly placing the cup on the skin in order to create a suction by creating a vacuum, this causes the tissue underneath to be raised into
the cup as you see in the image, by doing so, there is an increase in circulation underneath. The tissue that has been up lifted, and is helped by relieving pain by pulling out toxins which have lingered, trapped under that skin, and any fascial
restrictions may release.
