Acupuncture stems from Traditional Chinese Medicine and is a holistic health technique used to stimulate specific points on the body.
Acupuncture has been around for hundreds of years, it has seen the trends turn and change. It has stood the test of time and that is because it works! It is even prescribed on the NHS and is in the NICE protocol for lower back pain.
Acupuncture works through a series of networks that run through our bodies, called meridians. Each meridian has a collection of points that ultra fine needles are used to correct any imbalances in the meridians. Daily stresses we put our bodies through can cause blockages leading to physical symptoms occurring. The needles stimulate our nervous system and regulate our hormones to promote our natural healing abilities. The needles also cause the body to release endorphin's, allowing it to go back to a natural, tranquil and relaxed state. The needles used are so fine, they are a similar width of a hair, and used with a guide tube to ensure a pain-free application.
