Our Acupuncture

There are many styles of acupuncture and the one practiced here is traditional - to the point of being purist. Unlike some media depictions, we rarely use more than 3 or 4 needles per session. Acupuncture does not GIVE you more energy (though it often feels that way.  Note however - that Qigong can).  Your acupuncturist's job is to manipulate the Qi flow to send it to the locations and organs where it is most required.  Hence redirecting Qi to 20 locations can mean there is less Qi to go around each point.

Please note that all needles used here are disposable, sterile, single use needles. Laser acupuncture is also an option, if absolutely necessary.
