acupuncture needles

At SIA Medical Centres both traditional and laser acupuncture are available.

Acupuncture is a form of therapy that utilizes the Ancient Chinese concept of qi or energy flow. The body is served by a number of energy pathways or meridians, which have specific points along them. These can be manipulated to balance the flow of energy through the body. Using special fine acupuncture needles or a low powered laser beam we can stimulate these acupuncture points where they will affect the area to be treated

Acupuncture is useful in the treatment of many conditions:

• Headaches • Osteoarthritis
• Rheumatoid Arthritis • Musculoskeletal complaints
• Sporting injuries •• Depression
• Anxiety • Menopausal complaints
• Painful periods • Allergy
• Smoking cessation
