Acupuncture is an ancient healing tool that has been used for thousands of years to treat and correct many health conditions. It is based on the theory that throughout the body there is an invisible force or qi that runs through channels called meridians. At times this energy or qi may become blocked, stagnant or altered this then leads to disharmony and disease. Acupuncture seeks to clear blockages, soothe the qi and promote circulation of healthy qi to relieve the diseased state.
At Rana Health we practise the Traditional Japanese methods and style of Acupuncture. This is a hands-on approach that uses gentle, virtually pain-free needling techniques, heat treatments (moxibustion) and related techniques. We look, listen and hear what you and your body are telling us through pulse, tongue, palpatory and verbal enquiry. We apply Acupuncture to treat a myriad of health conditions and injuries, either on its own or in conjunction with other natural therapies, such as Massage and/or Herbs.
