Acupuncture and massage are both very effective treatments to help a range of ailments and concerns. When they are both combined together it can create the best restorative treatment to help melt away the physical tension, quieten down a busy mind and bring the body back to a deeper level of balance.
How does acupuncture work?
Acupuncture involves inserting needles into the body to stimulate sensory nerves in the skin and muscles.
Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy – known as chi or qi – believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. When the qi does not run smoothly throughout the body this can result in illness or imbalance. Imbalanced qi can manifest as a variety of physical and emotional symptoms such as chronic pain, fatigue, low mood, headaches, congested sinuses, anxiety, insomnia, digestive disorders, and menstrual problems. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture is believed to re-balance your vital energy.
