What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture has existed for hundreds of years.  Originating in China, this form of therapy has grown in popularity in use for encouraging natural healing, stress and pain relief and improving general mood and well-being.

How does acupuncture work?

Qualified therapists administer acupuncture by gently inserting thin flexible needles to specific areas on your body.  These needles are strategically inserted to specific points on your body and are left in place for a pre-determined length of time.  The goal is to create a therapeutic effect, remove discomfort, pain and stress.
