Acupuncture is a tried and tested system of Chinese medicine that has been used for thousands of years to restore, promote and maintain good health. Fine needles are placed at specific points on the body in order to relax muscles, relieve stress and normalise body function.
Acupuncture is very safe, the needles used are sterile, single-use and disposable. Acupuncture is considered suitable for all ages, including babies and children and can be used along side conventional medicine.
