Acupuncture is an alternative medicine methodology, and one of the main forms of treatment in Traditional Chinese medicine, that treats patients by manipulating fine, disposable needles to regulate the circulation of Qi, or energy in the body through channels known as meridians.

In acupuncture, needles are inserted at various very specific points (acupuncture points) in the body to help bring the body back into balance, be that in a physical, mental or emotional state.

Traditional Chinese medicine also includes moxa, cupping, TuiNa and Acupressure.

  • Moxa is where a shouldering stick of compacted herbs is held close to the needles, or acupuncture points, as a heat treatment.

  • Cupping is where glass cups are placed on the body in a way which creates therapeutic suction.

  • TuiNa is a Chinese massage technique which may be applied in cases where the problem is more physical.

  • Acupressure can be used when there is a fear of needles. Direct thumb pressure is applied to the acupuncture points instead of the needles.
