What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a collection of techniques involving the stimulation of special points on the body with very fine needles that are then manipulated manually or by electrical stimulation.
Before your treatment your acupuncturists will use Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnostic methods such as tongue and pulse analysis to provide a complete health assessment.
