More Than Just Acupuncture...

Whilst acupuncture is the main therapy used during treatment, more often than not it will be accompanied by other commonly used Chinese therapies. If deemed appropriate, one or more of the following therapies will be included in your treatment and provided at no extra cost:

Auricular Acupuncture

Auricular Acupuncture is acupuncture of the ear. Various parts of the body correspond to specific points in the outer ear. These points are stimulated to help treat a variety of conditions however its main use in modern day acupuncture is for treating addictions such as smoking. There are numerous studies documenting the success of auricular acupuncture for nicotine and drug cessation.

Electro-Acupuncture

Electro-acupuncture is a type of acupuncture using electrical currents similar to a tens machine to stimulate acupuncture points. Electrodes are connected to the needles in order to direct currents in pulses to the body. This is an extremely effective method for improving neuralgic and muscular pain.


Moxibustion (Heat Therapy)

Moxibustion is an extremely common traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves applying heat to various locations on the body through the burning of mugwort. Mugwort is a herb that burns extremely hot when ignited. When directed over the skin the smouldering herb delivers an extremely pleasant and deeply penetrating heat to the body. There are various indications for the use of moxibustion such as dispelling cold symptoms and improving the flow of qi and blood.


Vacuum Cupping Massage (Cupping)

Cupping involves creating a vacuum in a cup-like device which is then applied to an area of the body that is usually muscle or tissue rich. This causes a low pulling pressure on the skin and cutaneous tissue. This in turn increases blood circulation to the area, increasing the supply of nutrition to the tissue and promoting metabolism. Cupping is a completely unique experience and patients should expect to feel a moderate but tolerable pulling sensation during treatment. Slight bruising and mild tenderness is common after cupping however it is not painful and any redness should fade within a week.
