About this service
Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles at various points in the body according to either Western anatomical muscle trigger points or Traditional Chinese Medicine energy meridians. It works by stimulating the release of chemical signals (endorphins) that can help with reducing inflammation, reducing pain, increasing blood flow, and drawing your body's attention and internal healing reaction to that area. According to Chinese Medicine theory, it can also unblock channels where the energy (Qi) is not flowing smoothly, clear excess trapped energy, and stimulate your body to bring more energy into the system in cases of deficiency. Acupuncture is an excellent treatment for pain-related conditions, hormonal conditions, sleep and stress reduction, fatigue, digestive concerns and decreasing inflammation overall. It is a gentle and safe therapy that can help most people on their steps towards achieving their health goals.
