Acupuncture is a modality that originates from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It uses very fine, sterile needles inserted at points along the meridians to regulate the flow of energy (known as Qi) and guide your body back to a state of balance. A trained Acupuncturist may also use techniques like cupping and moxibustion, or prescribe Chinese herbal formulas and dietary adjustments to optimise health outcomes for their clients.Myotherapists are highly trained professionals who employ a variety of techniques to assess and treat muscle-related issues.

What does an Acupuncture appointment involve?

An acupuncture appointment involves a thorough assessment or review of your health goals or concerns, including a reading of your pulse and tongue analysis.
Your practitioner will then begin the acupuncture treatment, and may incorporate cupping or moxibustion into the session. Treatment may also involve dietary guidance or a prescription of a Chinese herbal formula.
