Restore balance and harmony in your body and mind 

To an acupuncturist, symptoms are a sign that something is out of balance. Restoring your body and mind to balance is what we do best. 

Keeping in balance is theory.

To stay in balance, you would ideally follow an active busy day with a restful nights sleep, you would counter strenuous physical exercise or mental concentration with times of relaxation and fun and you would offset hot spicy foods with a cooing drink. 

The reality is, in a demanding and busy life, it can be a challenge to maintain your equilibrium. Have you noticed how if you have too many stressful days without quality rest you'll get a headache or come down with a cold: it is your body's way of letting you know you've slipped out of balance.

Acupuncture focuses on fixing the imbalances in your system so the body can heal itself.

Acupuncture treats the underlying imbalances that are causing your unwanted symptoms. For example headaches, reflux, insomnia and a short temper all point to the liver being out of balance. In this case the treatment is focused on returning your liver to balance and allowing the unwanted symptoms resolve. Thankfully, you already have an inbuilt and amazing ability to heal yourself and acupuncture simply utilises and maximises your innate healing capacity to get your health back on track.

Acupuncture is a deeply relaxing experience.

If you've never had acupuncture before you might be surprised to know that acupuncture is a deeply relaxing experience. It feels like having all your tension and stress melted away leaving you feeling revitalised in mind, body and emotions. Thats why many clients continue to return for a 'tune up' even when their symptoms are no longer present.
