Acupuncture involves the stimulation of specific points on the body using a variety of techniques. Specific acupuncture points are chosen based on the individual Chinese Medicine diagnosis. Acupuncture needles are inserted and retained for 20-45 minutes in a treatment session.
Following an acupuncture treatment, it is advised that you be kind to your body and avoid alcohol, caffeine and vigorous exercise.
Acupuncture is often used in conjunction with Chinese Herbal Medicine in more chronic conditions.
