What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a key component of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) involving inserting thin, sterile needles into the body at specific acupuncture points, each of which have their own function in helping to regulate the body. In Chinese medicine, when the body is out of balance, dysfunction, pain or illness may occur. Acupuncture aims to restore this balance, helping your body return to it's natural, healthy, symptom-free state. It is both gentle and relaxing.

This gentle and holistic approach differentiates acupuncture from 'dry-needling', in which acupuncture needles are used purely to release muscle trigger points.
