Acupuncture works by stimulating specific points on your body with acupuncture needles or pressure
This relieves obstructions in the flow of energy and enables the body to heal.
According to traditional Chinese medicine acupuncture points are located on meridians, your body’s vital energy runs through these meridians. This energy is known as “qi” or “chi.”
Cupping and Moxibustion
Cupping dates back thousands of years and is creating suction by using glass spheres and heat. It is designed to bring blood to the surface relieving inflammation, creating better blood flow and relaxation.
Moxibustion is a Chinese medicine practice complementary to Acupuncture. Performed by burning herbs (usually Mugwort leaves) held over or applies to acupuncture points.

How does an acupuncture appointment work
An acupuncturist will examine you, then assess your needs and how best to support you.
You will then be left for a few minutes to remove your top and cover up. Then you will be invited to lay on the treatment table, you may be asked to lie down on your front, back or one side, depending on where the needles are to be inserted. Your therapist may perform some cupping prior to beginning acupuncture.
3. Treatment Begins
Your therapist will insert one or more thin, sterile needles. The acupuncturist will use new single-use, disposable, sterile needles.
