  • Headache and migraine

Acupuncture involves the insertion of sterile needles into defined points on the body. Needles are inserted until you experience a ‘de Qi’ sensation. This is usually described as a dull, heavy feeling, which can be local or move to another area of the body. Needle insertion is usually painless, however some people can be more sensitive to the Qi sensation than others. Stimulation of these points encourages a healthy flow of Qi or energy through the body. Or in other words, Acu-puncture is “a means of sending messages to the body to remind it that it needs to restore itself”. Depending on your condition, needles can be retained for up to 20 minutes. 

What should you do before an acupuncture treatment?

  • You should eat a light meal 1-2 hours before your appointment.
  • You should be adequately hydrated and have emptied your bladder before treatment.
  • You should wear comfortable clothing so that you can completely relax during your treatment.
