Acupuncture

Acupuncture is used to treat a variety of common and perplexing health problems including:

♦ musculo-skeletal pain
♦ stress related disorders
♦ stroke
♦ depression and or anxiety
♦ headaches
♦ digestive disturbances
♦ fertility stimulus

The body has meridians, or channels, along which energy (chi) travels. Daily living, stressors and health problems all impact upon the body’s balance of chi. These imbalances or blockages can cause pain and various symptoms which can then be treated with the use of acupuncture for therapeutic benefits.

In addition to traditional Chinese Acupuncture therapy, we offer Acupuncture for specific conditions including:

Japanese Scalp Acupuncture

Japanese Scalp Acupuncture treats the scalp as a microsystem representing the whole body. Needles or laser are used on the scalp after a ‘neck diagnosis’ is performed.

Laser Acupuncture

Laser Acupuncture uses 5 milliwatts (low dose) or 100 milliwatts of concentrated energy for trigger point therapy. This therapy is suitable for musculoskeletal pain, people who do not wish to be treated with needles and children.

Cosmetic Acupuncture

Cosmetic Acupuncture involves a non invasive course of treatments based on traditional acupuncture to help diminish lines, tighten the muscles and improve skin texture.

Biomesotherapy

Biomesotherapy combines the application of acupuncture and trigger point therapy with natural homeopathic medicines to stimulate the body’s own healing capacity.

This therapy works by stimulating the body through the use of a sterile saline solution injected through fine needles underneath the skin. This stimulates the organ systems and is called a cutivisceral response. At the same time, oral homoeopathic medicines that focus on the organ or area of the body that requires treatment are given.

The needles used in the saline injections are as fine as acupuncture needles. The saline is then injected just under the skin or into certain muscle points, which may be trigger points or acupuncture points. Treatment of and around the joints is also common. In the majority of cases, a biomesotherapy session consists of a series of small treatments on a certain body area.

The aim of biomesotherapy is to help the body to heal itself and to normalise the nervous system. Many of the treatments used in this therapy are designed to relax muscle tension.

Biomesotherapy is also concerned with detoxification. Accumulated toxins in the body can affect the immune system, causing inflammation in the body. They can also disturb the nervous system, resulting in pain and discomfort. Therefore, eliminating toxins is an important treatment goal.
