Benefits of acupuncture:
Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through the skin at strategic points of the body. The key component of traditional Chinese medicine is the use of Acupuncture which is most commonly used to treat pain. Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force. Many Western practitioners view the acupuncture points as places to stimulate nerves, muscles and tissues connectivity.
Some believed that this stimulation boosts your body’s natural painkillers. Acupuncture is used mainly to relieve discomfort associated with a variety of diseases and conditions, including, Chemotherapy-induced and postoperative nausea and vomiting, dental pain including
I have been seeing Virgina for over 2 years. I found her when I was looking for pain relief treatment for chronic lower back pain. Not only did her treatment plan fix the issue with my back, she also worked on my over-all health and balancing my hormones.
Highly recommended! Went to see Virginia for severe migraine and neck/back issues. She was recommended by 2 friends who had previously seen her along with some family members and they raves on about how good Virginia was and how she fixed all their problems ranging from stomach issues to body aches and pains. I was definitely not disappointed and have been migraine free for over a month now and don’t have to rely on strong medication and my neck/back issues are still being worked on due to years of not looking after myself, but is a lot better than before. Virginia is very friendly, knowledgeable and experienced. You must go see her if you want to fix those aches and pains!
Thank you Virginia, for the acupuncture, tea and warmth which has helped treat the shoulder injury. I have been and will continue to recommend you to others. The discomfort I had has dissipated. Your knowledge and care made me feel at ease during each session. Treatment was a time for me to look forward to rather than fear and I feel confident in myself once more.
I was referred by friends to this business. I have had ongoing chronic pain in my neck and all the way down the right side of my back and into my hip. I have tried chiropractic treatment, massage and other acupuncture providers. While I have had some relief from these treatments I have been left with an underlying residual dull ache which I haven’t been able to shift. Virginia was able to assess and treat me providing immediate relief. After my first appointment I found my pain level significantly reduced and mobility improved. I returned the following day and after that treatment I am with less pain and moving more freely than I have for 18 months. I found Virginia clear in her approach, she talked about what she was going to do and showed me on a ‘dummy’, then she very quickly found the source of my pain and treated it with brilliant results. Unfortunately I do t live in Auckland, however I will be returning for a regular appointment with Virginia whenever I am in town. Highly recommended for pain relief and professional approach
