Acupuncture is based on the concept of life energy which flows through 'meridians' in the body. The principle aim of acupuncture is to help rebalance the body’s energy flow by inserting very fine needles through the skin at specific points on the body, and to various depths.

What to expect during your session

There are 350 acupuncture points in the body. Your acupuncturist will use one or more fine needles at one or more acupuncture points to access the meridians or energy pathways within the body.

After an initial consultation, your therapist will identify a combination of acupuncture points to focus on. You’ll be asked to lie down on your back, front or on one side to allow your acupuncturist to insert fine needles into the skin, at varying depths, to access the meridian pathways with the aim to rebalance the body’s energy flow.
