What is acupuncture?

ACUPUNCTURE The earliest acupuncture needles were made of stone, called ‘bian’. Later, the ancient character for needle (‘zhen’) included the bamboo radical, suggesting acupuncture needles were made from bamboo. By the Warring States period (500 B.C.), advances in metallurgy made it possible to manufacture needles of a fine & thin quality. The so-called Nine Needles described in the “Inner Classic” were used during the Bronze and Iron Age. Later, gold, silver and alloy metal needles were made. Today stainless steel needles are commonly used.


Modern research demonstrates acupuncture’s effects on cutaneous inflammatory & immune responses. Proven effective for: wound healing, rheumatoid arthritis & eczema, modulating non-specific immune reactions (atopic allergies), modulating pain experience for chronic neuropathic pain syndromes; changes to blood coagulation (rheumatoid arthritis, gout & psoriasis), enhancing vasodilatory response, increasing IVF implantation success rates and improving heart microcirculation & blood pressure.
