Acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain. Increasingly, it is being used for overall wellness as well as many acute and long term conditions.
Traditional Chinese medicine explains Acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as chi or qi which flows through pathways (meridians) in the body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, Acupuncture aims to restore health and energy flow to each part of the body.
In addition to traditional Acupuncture which used needles we also offer laser acupuncture which is a non-invasive pain free option.
At Malvern Natural Health Care we offer Acupuncture with a difference, using a variety of options to suit your individual needs
Traditional needles – As used in TCM for thousands of years
Medical Grade Laser Acupuncture – Pain free and non invasive
Electro Acupuncture – Used together with TCM needles for added effect, especially with musculoskeletal conditions
Acupressure – Non invasive pressure points that can be incorporated into other treatments such as remedial massage or even used at home.
Cupping – Which can be used in combination with the Acupuncture treatment
