Acupuncture is the insertion of fine needles into the skin. Because these needles are so fine patients feel little sensation on insertion and often feel a deep sense of relaxation. Most are so relaxed they often fall asleep in the treatment room.
Treating with needles promotes the natural circulation of Qi or energy and blood around the body, enabling the body to come back to a natural state of balance and health that then lessens the hold of symptoms, allowing them to reduce and drop away.
Natalie will ask questions about and around the condition using Chinese Medical skills of palpation and tongue and pulse taking to further refine diagnosis.
