Medical Acupuncture

 

Acupuncture is now one of the most researched and clinically proven methods of complementary pain relief, used around the globe.

Sterile single-use needles of .22mm width are used . They are applied in sequence to points and areas of muscle hypertension.  When applied, what you feel are your own nerve endings and muscle fibres twitch in response.  The twitch response contracts and then relaxes the muscles.  That’s it.

Needles can be applied in sequence to meridians, in keeping with the teachings of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).

I also offer acupressure massage.  Working with the meridians and with the TCM points, but without the needles.
