This technique uses very fine needles placed at specific points on the body. Often described as relaxing and calming, the treatment takes place in our peaceful clinic setting with soft music in the background.
After the consultation and discussion, Teja or Jacinda will select the appropriate points to use and then clean the area with alcohol before beginning the treatment. Once all the points are in, you will be left to relax for around 20 to 30 minutes.

The first recorded treatise that discusses acupuncture and channels along the body was the Huang Di Neijing Lingshu (The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine), circa 220 BCE. Since then, acupuncture has undergone continual refinement. Teja and Jacinda practice ‘Hunyuan Acupuncture’, which is a further refinement of what is broadly termed ‘Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)’.
