Chinese medicine is a comprehensive health system in which Acupuncture is one part. Acupuncture is the insertion of (very tiny) sterilised needles into certain points on the body to stimulate a specific response. There are over 1,500 acupuncture points (acupoints) on the body and each has its own specific uses and effects.

When an acupuncture needle is inserted the body can respond in a number of ways. Firstly, your muscles can relax. While that is happening, your nervous system can down-regulate – i.e. calm down from a ‘fight-or-flight’ state to ‘rest-and-digest’. Acupuncture can even work to reduce pain signals coming from the brain to an injured area.


By inserting a needle into a specific point (an acu-point), the body’s central nervous system is activated. The effect of a point depends on where it is located and which nerve is being stimulated. People are often surprised when we use the shin to treat your digestion, but low and behold your tummy will start to rumble as soon as we pop in some points along the front of your lower leg!

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine provide a holistic treatment approach. Each person has their own individual ‘pattern’ for their body type and symptoms. By treating this pattern with acupuncture (and herbs if they are needed) the main condition resolves as well as some other unrelated symptoms too!

What this means is that Acupuncture can be beneficial for a number of conditions. If you are curious if Acupuncture and Chinese medicine might be helpful for you, please get in touch.
