Acupuncture is a Traditional Chinese Medical modality used for thousands of years with its usage continuing to spread all around the world. With very few complications and minimal pain when administered by a qualified practitioner, it is able to alleviate and treat several health conditions and maintain optimal health.
Acupuncture is a non-invasive technique which involves inserting a single-use metallic needle, as thin as your hair, into the skin of specific points lying on the body. These needles are then stimulated with the hand or electrically to generate a ‘de qi’ sensation, a feeling of tingling, dull-ache, throbbing or heaviness, which signifies the ‘awakening of Qi’, the precursor to initiating or maintaining the body’s homeostasis.
