Acupuncture – General practice

Acupuncture has a long and successful history of treating a vast array of medical conditions. It can be traced back over 5000 years to Ancient China, and remarkably it is still as relevant and applicable today as it was back then. This is primarily due to its ability to promote the body’s natural healing processes and address the root cause of an illness rather than just treating its symptoms.

It focuses upon restoring the natural balance of the body (homeostasis) and promoting ongoing health and wellness.

Acupuncture promotes healing by virtue of its potential to:

  • stimulate internal organ function
  • initiate neurological, immunological and endocrine responses
  • reduce pain and inflammation
  • accelerate the body’s healing after injury/illness
  • detoxify and oxygenate the blood
  • raise natural endorphin levels
  • stimulate mental clarity
  • relax muscles and ligaments
  • increase blood circulation.
