Experience the gentle benefits of acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ancient practice of natural healing from the Orient and is one form of the traditional Chinese system of medicine which has been used very effectively for over 5000 years. Acupuncture is gaining respect in the western world as its practice has grown spectacularly over the last 3 or 4 decades.

Our acupuncture practitioners are trained and highly skilled at using this ancient technique to treat anything from smoking addiction to back aches.

What does acupuncture involve?

Acupuncture involves the stimulation of certain specific points on the body to enhance the flow of vital energy (Chi). Chi travels on the surface of the body and through internal organs. In traditional Chinese medicine, the central belief is that for the body to function at its peak it must be in balance.

What can our practitioners treat?

Acupuncture is effective in the treatment of a wide range of common and not so common health conditions. It can also assist with general health maintenance and disease prevention. By strengthening and enhancing normal body functions, the immune system is regulated and a general sense of well-being is promoted.
