Acupuncture is a system of complementary medicine in which fine needles are inserted in the skin at specific points along what are considered to be lines of energy (meridians), used to assist in the easing of various physical and mental conditions. By effecting the body's energy pathways as well as causing micro damage to tissue, stimulates the healing process within the body. Helping to promote recovery and assist in the relief of pain.
Acupuncture helps to strengthen the body's' energy and remove blockages that have helped cause disharmony and dis-ease that many of us encounter either acutely or on a more chronic, systemic level. For this reason acupuncture can be used to assist with a wide range of issues.
Acupuncture is often now recommended by medical professionals in assisting with conception whether to compliment IVF treatment or as a way of settling and balancing the body when there is no medical reason to be found.
