At Pivotal Chinese Medicine Clinic, we perform Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Moxibustion, Cupping and GuaSha. 

Acupuncture has its origin in traditional Chinese medicine and has been in use for more than 2,000 years.  It involves the practice of inserting thin needles into the body at specific points to relieve pain, or treat the symptoms of a disease.  

 

Acupuncture is usually painless because the needles are very fine (0.2 mm wide).  When the needles are inserted, you may feel mild tingling around the site, warmth or heaviness, or even nothing at all.  The needles are pre-sterilised and disposable.

 

We also use moxibustion (burning herbs held over or applied to acupuncture points) to further assist the treatment process. The moxa cone is placed on the acupuncture needle and then lit.  The patient will experience a pleasant heating sensation that penetrates deep into the skin

Electroacupuncture will also be used if necessary to help stimulate the points.   This involves connecting small clips to the acupuncture needles to attach to a device that generates continuous electric pulses.  The frequency and intensity of the impulses being delivered are adjusted by the practitioner depending on the condition being treated.  This can enhance traditional acupuncture treatment and is especially beneficial for musculoskeletal problems.

After a session of acupuncture, you will normally feel relaxed and refreshed, but specific responses depend on each person.

 

The number of treatments you need depends on your condition.  In most cases, people experience a reduction in symptoms within a few sessions.  The idea of acupuncture is to restore the natural balance of energy inside your body.  Once the balance is restored, the body can take care of itself.
