Acupuncture boosts your immune system and stimulates your body’s immune response and strengthens its resistance to infections. Studies have shown the effectiveness of acupuncture in improving the body’s immune function by increasing white blood cells and t-cell numbers. Also, by releasing endorphins, the body’s natural pain-killers, it helps to manage many conditions as well as chronic pain.

Ease the journey
When you are out of balance, overwhelmed or feeling lost, acupuncture offers you a space to feel safe and cared for. Studies have shown that acupuncture calms your nervous system and switches off the flight or fight response, giving you a sense of peaceful equanimity. It works by releasing serotonins and endorphins, the natural feel-good hormones, which are the body’s natural pain-killers and triggers a feeling of happiness and general well-being.
Receiving acupuncture helps you to feel whole and leads you to an inner sanctuary where you are able to find clarity.
Going through life’s major changes or experiencing a health issue affects us physically and emotionally. Events such as relocation, retirement, divorce or bereavement, can be accompanied by episodes of anxiety, low mood, illness, insomnia, feeling stuck or off-balance. Acupuncture treatment can reduce or eliminate many uncomfortable symptoms as well as giving you space to recharge and readjust.
While acupuncture is not psychotherapy, it can assist you with the internal work of becoming more self-aware making it easier to notice how you feel. Working on a deeper level, acupuncture can promote acceptance, balance and profound healing, enabling you to move forward and enter the new phase of life with serenity and joy.
