A healthy body has an abundant supply of qi – or “life energy” – that flows through channels (called meridians) to all parts of the body to support physiological functions. Poor nutrition, stress, infection, exposure to cigarette smoke and other external factors can reduce levels of qi or block its flow. In this state the body quickly becomes imbalanced and more susceptible to disease or illness.

Acupuncture helps to restore optimal levels and flow of qi by stimulating specific points, termed acu-points, along the meridians. By clearing energy blockages and promoting an increased supply of qi, acupuncture treatments promote healing and return the body to a state of harmony and well-being.

Acupuncture provides the added benefit that, once order is restored, the body is better able to protect itself and maintain balance. In the clinic, an acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles and you don’t feel much.

Acupuncturist normally check the persons pulse and inspect the tongue colour shape, then following the diagnosis, Acupuncturist start giving patients treatments.

The reason for this is that the tongue is the only muscle you can see outside the body, and when you look at the tongue it can tell you what is happening inside, feeling the pulse will tell body energy unbalanced situation, then understand what is happen in the body.   As the needles go in people say they feel it a little bit, but it does not really hurt. The treatment uses between 5-20 needles place around the body according to the acupuncture points and how big area affected.

Once inserted the patient will rest for around 30-50 minutes. The people felt very relaxed and good way during and after the treatment. Acupuncture can be used for treating conditions such all kind of pain and sports injuries, women problem, pregnancy issues and skin problem, emotions issues and general health unbalance problem.
