The term acupuncture refers to using a needle to puncture the skin. A fine needle is inserted just below the surface of the skin to stimulate the points, which lie along what are known as pathways of energy called the meridian pathways.
These meridians are distributed throughout the whole body. If the flow of energy is blocked along the meridians, imbalances can occur which in turn lead to health problems. This flow can be unblocked with the use of needles at specific points along the meridian. These points correspond to the various organs within the body. When needles are applied to the points, the organ function is stimulated.

Acupuncture and moxibustion had been successfully used in the treatment of common pregnancy-related complaints such as nausea, heartburn, constipation and back pain. These treatments, however, can also be useful in helping a baby turn and engage properly in the last weeks of pregnancy and also to aid in the onset of labor.
Fertility & IVF
Fertility and Pregnancy Support
Acupuncture can help to optimise your ability to conceive naturally as well as being used in conjunction with your specialist doctor to support your fertility treatment. Acupuncture can also be used to support a healthy pregnancy.
This is achieved by modulating the immune response, increasing hormone receptivity to optimise hormonal function, supporting the nervous system to reduce physical and mental stress and reducing inflammation to assist with embryo implantation.
Supporting IVF / ART
We complement the treatment you receive from your fertility specialist and OB/GYN and work hand-in-hand with your physician to ensure that you are receiving optimal integrative care.
The ancient art of acupuncture has been used in Asia for centuries to treat many conditions and relieve pain. It is now being used all over the world to ease everything from lower back pain, nerve pain, muscular pain, headaches, fibromyalgia, menstrual cramps and more. Traditional Chinese acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely fine needles into the skin at specific points. This may relieve pain by releasing endorphins, the body's natural pain-killing chemicals, and by affecting the part of the brain that governs serotonin, a brain chemical involved with mood.
Hypnotherapy is guided hypnosis, or a trance-like state of focus and concentration achieved with the help of a clinical hypnotherapist. This trance-like state is similar to being completely absorbed in a book, movie, music, or even one's own thoughts or meditations. In this state, clients can turn their attention completely inward to find and utilize the natural resources deep within themselves that can help them make changes or regain control in certain areas of their life.
Kinesiology is a Holistic Alternative Therapy that incorporates the Chinese Medicine models of the Meridian system and the 5 Elements with manual muscle testing to determine the functional condition of the body. Kinesiologists use muscle monitoring to ask the body for feedback regarding its current state. Muscle testing allows the kinesiologist to find the most beneficial technique from a toolbox of structural, biochemical, emotional, electrical and spiritual processes. Kinesiology enables you to bypass your conscious mind to isolate causal factors in your subconscious. In other words, it lets your body do the talking.
