What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is an effective therapy originated from China, through the use of fine needles into specific points on the body, while in return the body responds by activating its own natural healing ability through releasing endorphins and anti-inflammatory responses. This can be used in a number of ways to positively affect your healing & well being.
What can be treated with Acupuncture?
Acupuncture has been used to treat a number of musculoskeletal injuries of the neck, shoulder, lower back, knee and ankle. It can also be used to treat internal and stress related conditions such as sleep disorders, digestive, headaches and anxiety.
What should I expect during an Acupuncture treatment?
Treatment times range from 30-60 mins and will involve inserting extremely fine needles (comparable to human hair!) into specific areas of the body, depending on the condition or injury being treated, usually placed locally around the area of pain. 90% of the time patients don’t even notice the needles going in and most will fall into an extreme state of relaxation and will leave feeling refreshed!
What is Cupping Therapy?
Cupping Therapy also originated from China and involves the use of glass or plastic cups and creating a vacuum through a suction. This creates an increase in blood circulation and promotes cell repair. This form of therapy is widely used throughout the world especially among elite to amateur level athletes to treat and manage injuries. Cupping Therapy has proven to provide reduction of tension and increased blood circulation, optimal for healing and recovery.
