Acupuncture

Acupuncture is the gentle insertion of hair-fine needles into specific points on the body called acupoints to stimulate the flow of one's Qi or natural healing energy. Acupuncture has been practiced in China for thousands of years. The essence of acupuncture treatment is to improve the wellbeing of the patient as a whole, rather than the related specific treatments for various symptoms.

An acupuncture needle is very thin, so it hardly hurts when the needle is inserted into the acupoints. In addition, an experienced TCM doctor or an acupuncturist with high levels of skills is capable of placing them into the acupoints with the least discomfort.

Acupuncture is helpful to a number of symptoms and conditions which include arthritis, asthma, back pain, depression, circulatory problems, anxiety, facial paralysis, fibroid, high blood pressure, indeterminate pains, infertility, menstrual problems, migraines, rheumatism, sciatica, skin conditions, ulcers etc…( other medical conditions not listed here are on the ‘disease’ webpage)

In some circumstances, heat or low voltage electricity application is chosen by the acupuncturist for the best results of the acupuncture treatment. These applications termed Moxibustion and Electro-Stimulation. They can be regarded as variations of acupuncture and may be used to further stimulate the natural healing power of your body by their effect on the needles.

Besides the beneficial effect acupuncture treatment brought alone, it may be also used along with other medical care to the greatest advantage. For example, it can be used for post-dental treatment pain relief, and it improves the healing process, it also lessens the side-effects of some medications used in chemo-therapy.

The effectiveness of acupuncture in pregnancy management and pain relief in parturition has long been recognized and proved. Acupuncture is also helpful in overcoming addictions. (Such as, smoking, alcohol, food and recreational drugs, etc)
