Acupuncture has its origins in Eastern Medicine, originating in China over 5,000 years ago.  This ancient art of healing has become widely accepted throughout the western world over the past 30 years.  Acupuncture is a natural therapy, which has several major benefits.

How does it work?

In Chinese Medicine the human body is likened to a highly complex electrical circuit, but instead of circulating electricity, the body circulates a specialised biological energy or life force called Qi (chi). The Qi flows via countless energy pathways called meridians throughout the body, linking and integrating the organs and tissues to make sure that they function well. During physical or emotional stress, exposure to harsh weather or a prolonged unhealthy life-style, the balance and strength of Qi flowing through the meridians is disrupted, resulting in a discomfort or disease.

Acupuncture can stimulate the effected areas along these meridians in order to restore the balance of Qi and bring equilibrium back within the body.

Will my treatment be painful?

Alan Jansson utilises much finer, Japanese style needles for treatment, rather than those traditionally used in Chinese acupuncture.  Thus, treatment can generally be expected to be pain free.

How will I feel after treatment?

Many people fall asleep during an acupuncture treatment and wake up feeling relaxed. The first changes you may notice are a general improvement of energy levels, sleep and reduction of stress. Some people may respond quickly to treatment while others experience a more gradual improvement.
