Acupuncture styles and techniques

Traditional acupuncture involves the gentle insertion of sterilized needles in specific points through out the body.

Electro acupuncture places a small electrode attached to the needle sending an electrical current through the needle to the target area. This technique is often applied to increase blood flow, reduce pain and increase organ function.

Moxabustion uses heat to stimulate acupuncture points. This heat is generated by burning the herb Mugwort directly over the needle or indirectly over the acupuncture point. It is widely used to enhance the immune sys tem and improve blood flow.

Laser acupuncture uses a low energy light beam to influence the flow of current to an acupuncture point. It is a non-invasive and aseptic procedure often applied to children and needle sensitive patients.

Cupping is the application of suction cups over the skin. It creates an negative pressure allowing the muscles to loosen and blood to flow. Often used to eliminate muscle pain and tension. Cupping has also been effectively applied to reduce respiratory congestion.

Acupuncture and fertility

With the increase rise in fertility concerns for the modern family, acupuncture has proven to have an optimising affect on both natural fertility and IVF.

For women acupuncture regulates and corrects hormonal imbalances. Acupuncture improves endometrial lining and assists in embryo implantation. Acupuncture is an effective therapy for stress management which can influence ovulation and menstruation.

Acupuncture can improve sperm quality, motility and abnormalities when there is a male factor contributing to infertility.
