Your treatment will start with a consultation to check your general state of health. Fine needles are then inserted in 12 to 15 points around the body to stimulate or suppress the flow of ‘Chi’.
Acupuncture aims to restore the balance of Chi energy – a state of equilibrium when Yin and Yang are in harmony. It may help with pain and suppress craving and is widely used to relieve stress.
Most people find acupuncture a pleasant and deeply relaxing experience; there should be no pain during the insertion of the needles. When the needles are inserted, you may feel a slight tingling sensation which indicates that the treatment is beginning to have some effect.
