Acupuncture is an ancient holistic therapy which is believed to have been developed in China over 3000 years ago. It involves using extremely thin, sterile and flexible needles being inserted superficially into the muscles and soft tissues.

Acupuncture is primarily used to reduce pain effectively. It works in two ways:

1. Pain Gate Mechanism: This is where the uncomfortable stimuli from the affected area are blocked at relevant level within the spine just like a traffic light system.
2. Central Nervous System Mechanism: It stimulates the release of Endorphins (Happy Hormones) from our brain and central nervous system. These endorphins also known as our bodies “natural pain killers”.
