Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medical (TCM) practice that involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body. These points are believed to correspond with specific organs, emotions, or sensory feelings. Acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain, but it can also be used for a variety of other conditions, such as anxiety, depression, IBS, stress and headaches. 


The needles used in acupuncture are very thin, and most people report feeling minimal pain as they are inserted. The needles may be left in place for a few minutes or up to 30 minutes. Some people experience a tingling or warm sensation at the acupuncture points, while others feel nothing at all.

Acupuncture affects the flow of Qi, which is a vital energy that is believed to flow through the body in channels called meridians. Treatments may include additional techniques such as moxibustion, gua-sha and fire cupping. 

Acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment for a variety of conditions, such as: 

Pain relief




Fertility issues


Migraines and headaches 

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) 


Sleep disorders
