A branch of Chinese medicine that has been practiced for many centuries, acupuncture involves the insertion of thin, pre-sterilized disposable needles at specific points on the body to promote the body to heal itself. This form of treatment aims to treat the main cause of the disease, rather than just alleviating its symptoms. At Serenity Wellness Centre, we offer acupuncture to help you with treatment of a variety of medical conditions that may have not responded to conventional treatment methods.
What We Offer?
Basically, acupuncture works with the body’s energy, known as “Chi”, which flows in pathways in the body called meridians. If this flow of energy is blocked, it results in pain, or pathological symptoms start occurring. Acupuncture promotes the deficient or stagnant energy to move, thereby promoting physical and mental well-being.
Upon your arrival at our centre, a team of fully qualified and trained acupuncture specialists will conduct a thorough assessment to determine the type of pain you are facing. They will also ask you about your overall health. Once the areas have been identified, the specialist will look for the points on your body to access the “Chi” that isn’t flowing right.
After finding these points, the specialist will quickly tap thin needles into your skin. They are likely to place several needles, some deeper than others depending on what they believe is required to unblock the flow of “Chi”. Most treatments last between 15 minutes to an hour, and multiple treatments may be required to completely treat the condition, such as:
- Circulatory disorder
- Back pain, musculoskeletal, sciatica and joint pain in the body
- Respiratory disorders
- Rheumatism and arthritis
- Tension type headaches
- Digestive disorders
- Addiction issues
- Fertility issues
- Stress related conditions
