Acupuncture is a form of treatment involving the use of very fine needles inserted into certain specific points of the body to stimulate the body to increase circulation and activate the body's own natural healing process.

Acupuncture can be used to treat a wide range of conditions and illnesses and it is a wonderful option when western medication does not work or is not tolerated.

We utilise one-time use disposable needles, so acupuncture is completely safe. We provide personalised services and develop treatment plans tailored to your specific needs. We may enhance your acupuncture treatment with moxibustion, Tui-Na, cupping or herbal medicine to achieve the best results. At Amarant Acupunctuur we are well equipped to provide you with the best service available today.

Moxa, or moxibustion, is a Traditional Chinese therapy that involves the burning of moxa made from dried mugwort, a soft and wooly herb, to penetrate to a deeper level of the body to expel cold and warm the meridians, which leads to smoother flow of blood and Qi (energy). We often use Moxibustion in conjunction with acupuncture.

Tui-nais a form of Chinese manipulative therapy, consisting of massage, acupressure and other forms of body manipulation. Tui-Na works by applying pressure to acupoints, meridians, muscles or nerves to remove blockages that prevent the free flow of Qi (energy). We often use Tui-Na in conjunction with acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping or Chinese herbs.

Cupping

involves the use of glass globes placed on the body to create a suction effect. Drawing up the skin is believed to open up the skin’s pores to stimulate the flow of blood to the muscles, balance and realign the flow of Qi (energy), break up obstructions and create an avenue for toxins to be drawn out of the body. At Amarant Acupunctuur we use both dry cupping (using heat) and air cupping.

Herbal MedicineHerbal Medicine refers to the use of a plant's seeds, berries, roots, leaves, bark or flowers for medicinal purposes. Traditionally this involves formulating a mixture of various herbs to create a personalised formula based on your specific needs. We provide herbal supplements in the form of tablets or capsules to provide you with the purest and best quality products.
