Chinese Medicine Acupuncture
Acupuncture is an ancient 2,000 year old Eastern technique for balancing the energy (qi) in the body. It involves a practitioner inserting very thin needles into meridian points (energy centres) of the body. The particular points that the needles are inserted will vary according to the patient’s presenting symptoms and needs. Patients usually feel no pain during this process, with usual sensations being a slight tingling, warmth or heaviness in the areas where needles are inserted.
Moxibustion is the process of applying herbs to the needle points. A moxa cone is added to needles and then lit up. The patient will feel a heating sensation but it should not be uncomfortable.
Electro-acupuncture therapy involves running a low current through the acupuncture points. Clips join the needles to a device that supplies electric current. The needs of each patient will be different, so your practitioner will determine the right electrical impulse for you.
