Acupuncture is used for the treatment of a range of illnesses and dysfunction both acute (recent onset) and chronic in nature. It has long been used for health maintenance, addressing non-specific signs and symptoms such as fatigue, feeling run-down and poor sleeping quality. Thus, acupuncture is not just for treating illness or injury but also useful in maintaining optimal health, which is important to everyone who runs a hectic life in today's society. Acupuncture can help the prevention of illness through identifying and addressing imbalances before manifestation.
Our practitioners use both classical and contemporary styles to treat different conditions as required. We will decide which approach is best for your conditions. Therapy may also include the use of other treatment modalities such as massage, cupping and gua sha depending on the problems and health concerns.
Our clinic also provides new Japanese Pyonex needle featuring a completely novel type of round head. The patches can be applied to the same acupoints after conventional acupuncture treatment. Thus efficacy can be maintained for a longer period of time. You can even do exercises and go to bed with the patch in place under practitioners’ advice.
Electro-acupuncture is also an excellent enhancement to traditional acupuncture. It involves the passing of a mild electrical current between two needles to improve Qi (energy) and blood circulation to an area. It is mainly used to treat pain, musculoskeletal and neurological disorder.
