Individual acupuncture consultations supervised by Qikan Yin, practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine at The Park Clinic run every Tuesday from 2pm to 5pm (by appointment only)
What is Acupuncture? Acupuncture is the therapeutic technique of regulating the functions of the body by stimulating specific body areas, named acupuncture points. The most commonly used stimulation of the acupuncture points is by the insertion of a fine needle at the point.
Each acupuncture point has a clinical indication which has been found through thousands of years’ clinical observation. In the past 40 years, the mechanism of how acupuncture works has been partially revealed. One of the major breakthroughs was the discovery of endorphins, which are a group of chemical materials produced inside the brain and which have extraordinary power over pain and emotions. The endorphins respond to needling stimulation and produce a pain-relieving effect.
