Acupuncture uses extremely fine needles through electrical, chemical, bloodflow canges to restore optimal functioning of the body.

Acupuncture treatments are aimed at finding balance within the body. Balance within the electrical signals, chemical changes, hormonal release and the physical structures of our body. What this does is creates an environment that allows your body to heal itself.

We are committed to help you commit to your treatment plan by offering treatment packages. Ask one of our friendly staff for more information.

We recommend you wear loose and comfortable clothing for your acupuncture session. If your practitioner needs to access a point on your leg, for example, it is easier if you have pants that can be loosely rolled up. Comfortable clothing is also easier to relax in during a treatment.

Acupuncture is meant to be as painless as possible. Patients note either a dull sensation or slight pinch when the superfine needles used in acupuncture are inserted into points on the body.

The frequency of visits depends on the nature of your condition and the response you have to treatment. Typically we suggest two to three times a week for the first few weeks to stabilise the condition and then once a week for the duration of the treatment plan. Once the treatment plan has been completed your practitioner may suggest you continue with monthly maintenance sessions.

You should generally expect to see positive improvements in the first 3 sessions. Following on your initial appointment, your practitioner will outline a treatment plan for you and continually assess it based on your progress.
