Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicinal intervention dating back thousands of years. It works by inserting thin needles superficially into the skin to stimulate small wells of energy. These wells are acupuncture points and the energy itself is called Qi. Qi flows through the acupuncture points along energy channels, or meridians. Qi is sometimes translated as life-force energy, which animates, informs and enlivens all living things.
Through clinical trials, acupuncture has been proven effective in treating various medical conditions and its use has expanded into Western and more conventional medical practices.
Acupuncture typically involves several weekly or bi-weekly treatments and most courses consist of up to 12 sessions. A visit to our acupuncturist will involve an exam and an assessment of your condition, insertion of needles and advice on self-care. Most sessions last between 30-60 minutes, depending on the area of the body being treated.
