The Benefits of Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a holistic approach that uses acupuncture and numerous other techniques to stimulate Channels and Meridians in the body, which helps to maintain optimal functioning of internal organs and tissues. During a TCM consult, acupuncture may be complimented by other techniques such as:

    • Moxibustion – the heating of acupuncture needles with dried herb sticks (Also known as ‘moxa’). This activates and warms the acupuncture point.
    • Cupping – applying glass cups to the skin’s surface in order to create suction. This helps to relieve stagnation of qi and blood, that can occur in sporting injuries etc.
    • Herbal medicine – Chinese herbs may be prescribed in the form of teas, pills, capsules and powders to supplement acupuncture treatment.
    • Electro stimulation – involves providing electrical stimulation to acupuncture needles. This technique is very useful in the treatment of muscle pain.
    • Acupressure – a great hands on way to consolidate the acupuncture treatment. Acupressure will be incorporated into the treatment if necessary or substituted for those afraid of needles.
