Acupuncture is one of the main treatment modalities in Chinese medicine which involves the gentle insertion of tiny thread-like needles in specific acupoints near the surface of the body that influence blood and oxygen circulation, nervous system function and organ function.

According to the WHO there are 104 different conditions that acupuncture treatment may benefit including migraines, sinusitis, colds, asthma, addictions, myopia, ulcers and other gastrointestinal problems, nerve pain, ringing in the ears, paralysis and loss of speech form stroke or other brain damage, sciatica and osteoarthritis.

On this basis it has recommended that acupuncture should be fully integrated into conventional medicine.All acupuncture needles are disposable.

The best known of the Chinese Medicine techniques, acupuncture utilizes fine needles to clear the meridians through which Qi (Vital Energy) flows. The needles are sterile and disposable, creating a slight sensation of pressure on the skin, but are not usually painful due to their small size.
Countless patients have found relief from many ailments and pain through the use of this natural and effective ancient technique.


If your are drawn to the philosophy of acupuncture but dislike needles, you may find that acupressure suits your needs just as well. Because it involves the stimulation of acupuncture points as well as touch, it is likely that the benefits of acupressure are in line with those of both acupuncture and massage.

However, acupressure has not been subjected to the same degree of scientific scrutiny as acupuncture. Traditional Chinese Medical Massage is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body using a variety of movements and sequences. It's good for:improving muscle tone,relieving stress and tension, aligning the spine and joints,increasing circulation and balance.dispersing impeded energy (Qi).
