Acupuncture promotes natural healing by the insertion of fine needles into specific acupuncture points located along energy pathways, called meridians. These points access the body’s natural energy flow known as Qi. Only disposable needles are used for the purpose of treatment.
There may sometimes be a mild and momentary sensation when a needle is inserted. It is not however a painful process and indeed many people find the treatment itself very relaxing. The initial treatment begins with a consultation and generally takes between an hour and an hour-and-a-half. Subsequent treatments take about 60 minutes.
Some people may feel significant improvements after the first treatment, however, the severity of the complaint, how long it has been present and a person’s general health are all factors in how many treatments will be needed to restore health.

Practitioners believe that the resulting heat helps stimulate these points and improves the flow of qi (energy) in your body.
