A form of treatment as per traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). This includes individual use, single insertion, filiform needles that are skillfully inserted in your tissues to improve the pain and stiffness.

Treatment involves use of many sizes of acupuncture needles that manipulate the tissues and improve the flow of qi (energy) in the energy channels which provides relaxation and pain relief resulting in a good night sleep on the day of treatment.

How does it work?


Western medical acupuncture is the use of acupuncture following a medical diagnosis. It involves stimulating sensory nerves under the skin and in the muscles.

This results in body producing natural substances, such as pain-relieving endorphins. It is likely that these naturally released substances are responsible for the beneficial effects experienced with acupuncture.

TCM explains that healthy body is result of a balance of complementary extremes of yin and yang of the life force known as Qi, pronounced “chi.” It is believed that pain or discomfort is a consequence of an imbalance of Qi in our body.

According to TCM, Qi flows through meridians, or pathways, in the human body. These meridians and energy flows are accessible through 361 acupuncture points in the body. Inserting needles into these points with appropriate combinations will bring the energy flow back into balance and restore the norm.
