Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). It involves the insertion of fine needles into the area being treated to stimulate acupoints. Targeting these acupoints allows acupuncturists to help correct imbalances in the flow of qi (‘chi’) through your body.
People who get acupuncture regularly swear by it and it is strongly endorsed by some medical practitioners like fertility and gynaecology service providers in Melbourne. Recent studies have proven its effectiveness when it comes to headaches, migraines, chronic pain, chemotherapy-induced nausea, pelvic or back pain during pregnancy, hay fever, fertility and more.
