Ancient Wisdom for Modern Wellness

Acupuncture works by stimulating specific points on the body to access the body’s natural healing forces and promote healing and balance. This process

  • Activates nerve pathways, sending feedback signals to the brain
  • Influences the autonomic nervous system, affecting hormones and pain control
  • Targets a network of energy channels (meridians) throughout the body
  • Aims to balance energy flow, either by boosting deficiencies or reducing excesses
  • Can address areas distant from the insertion point due to connected meridians

This form of alternative medicine has an advantage over traditional methods of care with its natural, drug-free approach to healing. It complements other medical treatments and can be tailored to address your individual needs.

Conditions It May Address

Acupuncture is beneficial for numerous health issues, including

  • Headaches and migraines
  • Musculoskeletal pain and injuries
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Digestive disorders
  • Allergies and sinus problems
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Women’s health concerns
  • Pregnancy-related discomfort

What to Expect During Your Session

Jacky begins with a comprehensive assessment of your health concerns and overall wellbeing to develop a personalised plan, carefully selecting acupuncture points to address your specific needs. During your session, ultra-thin, sterile needles are gently inserted at precise points on your body. Most patients find the process relaxing and experience little to no discomfort.

These points access the natural energy pathways of your body, stimulating the nervous system to release stress in the affected areas, ensuring the necessary flow of energy and nutrients for proper function, and allowing the body’s natural healing abilities to kick in.

The Difference Between Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine

While acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine are both integral parts of Traditional Chinese Medicine, they have different strengths. Acupuncture excels in addressing musculoskeletal conditions and pain; Chinese herbal medicine is particularly beneficial for internal medicine concerns.

Most patients will benefit from a combined approach, harnessing the strengths of both modalities.
