There are many styles of acupuncture available these days. The Acupuncture we offer is very simple and based on a holistic and traditional method of diagnosis and treatment. We use a minimal amount of needles per session and the technique is gentle as we don’t strongly manipulate the needles. Each treatment will involve an in depth discussion at the beginning where we go over any diet or lifestyle adjustments that may help, then the acupuncture treatment will last around 20 minutes where you will be able to relax and enjoy the time and space to yourself. After the first session we will then discuss your treatment plan and take it from there.
Also note that all needles used are disposable, sterile, single use needles.
Laser acupuncture is also an option, for children under 13 years of age and for adults wanting to avoid puncturing the skin.
What to expect in your session:
• Please wear loose and comfortable clothing that is easily stretched over knees and elbows
• It’s ideal if you remove jewellery before the session and turn off your mobile phone
• You will be left in the room for 20 minutes to relax or sleep while the needles perform their work.
• Acupuncture works wonderfully in collaboration with other therapies but we would recommend that you avoid other body treatments for at least 24, preferably 48 hours following acupuncture.
