WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture is a widely recognised form of TCM treatment in Singapore with sterile needles inserted into unique pre-identified acupoints to induce specific sensations known as “得气” (obtaining the qi). These sensations run a whole gamut from heaviness, numbness and soreness to distension and warmth.

How Does Acupuncture Help In Pain Management?

TCM views the human body as a holistic system, which is governed by the theory of Yin and Yang, qi and blood, as well as zang-fu (organ systems).

While qi is the vital energy that flows through the body’s meridian points, pain occurs when qi flow and blood is disrupted, causing disturbance to the body’s balanced state of yin and yang. External factors, such as physical trauma, lifestyle, habits, and environmental influences could also intensify the condition.

TCM recognises that acupuncture can help to improve qi and blood flow, restoring balanced stability in our bodies. It is performed by inserting needles into your body to stimulate the release of natural chemicals to aid your body in healing itself and alleviate pain and inflammation.
