Acupuncture has been shown to aid a wide range of conditions by supporting the immune system, strengthening and enhancing the body, releasing tensions and blockages.

Acupuncture is an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, which has been used to restore, promote and maintain good health for about 2,500 years. Acupuncturists insert fine needles in the skin at over 360 specific points along your meridian or energy lines. These needles stimulate the sensory nerves under the skin and in the muscles, which release natural chemicals (such as pain-relieving endorphins). Hundreds of studies have been conducted around the world on the efficacy of Acupuncture to complement other types of care and have shown that Acupuncture can help with a range of symptoms including:

Aches & pains, Allergies & Field Sensitives, Asthma, Back Aches, Depression, pain relief for Digestive Problems, Habit Changes like Smoking Cessation, Hayfever and Sinus Problems, Headaches & Migraines, temporomandibular (TMD/TMJ) pain, Hormonal & Menstrual Problems, Pain from Injuries, Insomnia, Low Energy, Low Immune System, Pregnancy pain, Sciatica, Skin Conditions such as neurodermatitis.
