What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a therapy that has been used for thousands of years that works by initiating your natural healing responses. Treatment involves fine, sterile needles inserted in the skin at specific "acupoints" along energy meridians, a network of invisible channels through the body. It works by improving blood flow which is how the body is able to heal itself.
Health can be disrupted in many ways; emotional upset, physical injury, poor diet or overwork are all common examples. By examining the underlying cause and how it has affected your body, the most appropriate holistic treatment for you can be chosen. Acupuncture also includes techniques including cupping and acupressure.
By applying needles through the surface of the skin, your natural healing responses are triggered. Your body will send red blood cells, white blood cells, pain-killers, hormones, and histamines - all you might need to heal an injury or wound.

What to expect at your consultation
Your time with Aurora will begin with thorough and in-depth health consultation, where you will discuss your health history, current symptoms and complaints, and lifestyle influences. During the consultation Aurora will look for bodily signs of deficiency or ill health - this includes looking at your hands & nails, tounge and irisis. We use iridology and some simple in-clinic assessments to measure adrenal health, which can include checking your blood pressure and urine analysis.
Once a diagnosis has been reached, Aurora will then discuss the best treatment plan with you, which will include a combination of herbal medicines, vitamin and mineral supplements, acupuncture, dietary therapy, massage or holistic counselling.
