Acupuncture is an alternative medicine where thin needles are inserted beneath the skin, to activate specific points along the channels and meridians of the body.


Acupuncture is recognised by the World Health Organization (WHO) as an effective alternative medicine for the treatment of many health problems. It has roots in traditional Chinese medicine, which focuses on improvement of physical health conditions and affective disorders, strengthening the body’s resistance to disease and relieving acute or chronic symptoms.


Over its 2500 years of development, a wealth of experience has accumulated in the practice of acupuncture, and it has become a popular treatment method all over the world.

Techniques we use


At our practice, we use a few different techniques from traditional and alternative medicine to boost your health and wellbeing, including:


Acupuncture: Our expert inserts thin, sterile, single-use needles beneath the skin, to activate specific points along the channels and meridians of the body, gently and effectively restoring the flow of energy and relieving blockages.


Cupping: This ancient but simple technique is used to increase the blood flow to knots and sore areas in muscles. Increased blood flow delivers fresh blood with nutrients and clears away waste to promote healing. Cupping was used by the USA Olympic swimming team to help them recover between races. 


Scraping (GuaSha) massage: Similar to cupping, scraping is designed to flush body tissue with fresh blood, relieving pains such as chronic neck pain, acute back pain, shoulder pain, and knots, among other pain-related ailments.


Moxibustion: This technique involves burning of the herb Mugwort, or Moxa. This stimulates Qi and blood flow and energy flow to the system. It has traditionally been used to treat menstrual issues, digestive problems, insomnia, anxiety, exhaustion, and skin irritation. It may also have the ability to change the position of breech babies in the womb.
