Looking After Yourself

Period Pain and Acupuncture

Health is everything. Our bodies are incredible and we ask A LOT of them. But in a life full of demands we often let our health fall to the end of our priority list…

The science and art of Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine offer a gentle natural healing to help balance body & mind, originating in ancient China well over 2,000 years ago and continuing to evolve.

Acupuncture is considered safe in the hands of a well-trained practitioner and has been found to be cost effective for some conditions.

Acupuncture treatment and Chinese herbs may be used on their own or can complement other treatments that you may be having.

Low-level laser therapy may be utilised instead of acupuncture needles for certain conditions.

Herbal medicine nourishes your tissues from the inside.

Most people experiencing acupuncture treatment for the first time (even people who are scared of needles) are surprised to discover how relaxing it is and may report that they have a ‘greater sense of well-being’.

There is a better quality of life out there for you, no matter your age.

Well done for thinking of your health before it’s a challenge.
