Acupuncture is well known for pain relief and is used for much more as well. This includes a wide range of physical problems and also emotional or mental health issues. My acupuncture incorprates different styles. I learnt TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine - a Chinese Communist invention) at college, and have since learnt different methods. I adapt my needling technique to suit the client - some like it heavy and others much lighter. I gauge this as I'm working.
