Chinese Medicine

Acupuncture uses fine needles, inserted through the skin into energy points.  The needles stimulate the movement of blood, energy, body fluids, nerves and hormones around the body to promote healing.  Acupuncture induces a state of relaxation and is usually a pleasurable experience.  Most needles are inserted only a small distance under the skin and produce little or no sensation.

The needles are sometimes warmed using a process known as moxabustion.  The herb, Ai Ye or mugwort, is burned over or on the needles or areas of the body, this gives a sense of pain relief and relaxation whilst encouraging blood flow and tissue repair.

The needles can also be attached to electrodes from which an electrical current flows.  This produces stimulation at the needle site and energy point, which can be extremely effective for pain relief, rehabilitation after strokes and inducing babies.

Cupping is used to deeply massage soft tissue and also encourage toxins to the surface of the body where they can be better resolved by the lymphatic and circulatory systems.  This process uses glass cups, which under vacuum suck the skin and flesh up and are either moved along muscles or sat stationary on a specific point.

Acupuncture can be used to treat a wide range of health conditions such as; muscular-skeletal problems including most trauma and injuries; fatigue and tiredness; gynaecological including menstrual and obstetric issues, it is particularly good during pregnancy; male and female infertility; endocrine system problems including menopause and thyroid; neurological including headaches and migraines; allergies; breathing problems; immune system issues; gastro-intestinal problems including IBS and candida; urination and urinary tract issues; blood pressure; cholesterol; palpitations; insomnia and sleep disorders; emotional and mental issues including depression, anxiety and addictions; and the promotion and maintenance of general well-being.

Paediatric Acupuncture
Children respond well to acupuncture but are often very anxious about needles.  The technique of inserting needles can be very gentle and this is always employed when treating children.  Mostly children need very few needles per treatment and the needles are not stimulated nor are they kept in for very long.  Using a friendly, inclusive approach most children find the experience both positive and empowering.

Acupuncture can be effectively used to tone and revitalize the skin of the face. Small needles are inserted into the fine lines and sagging areas of the face filling them with qi and blood, essentially puffing up the aging skin.  Not only are fine lines reduced, better skin tone and a more even, healthy skin colour can be achieved as an increase of blood is distributed to the vessels of the face.


Veterinary Acupuncture
Animals respond remarkably well to acupuncture. In China, horses, cows and pigs have been treated for well over 3000 years using acupuncture and herbal medicine.  Treatments are the same as for humans, as are the treatable conditions. 

The underlying theory of the mechanisms of qi and how it works is fundamentally the same for all animals, including humans, however the anatomy and some of the physiology is different.  A combined understanding of these helps to get the desired results for most conditions, especially muscular-skeletal.  All domesticated animals, both pets and stock, can be treated using acupuncture.
