Techniques of Acupuncture
We Use

Needling Therapy

A plastic guide tube is used to insert thin needles into specific acupuncture points through your skin. Needles can be used in a variety of ways, including spinning, moving up and down, flicking, and inserting at various angles. According to certified acupuncture professionals, an individual has 361 acupoints situated throughout their body that are positively impacted by needle insertion. Such points are the key sites where needles should be inserted in order to get maximum benefits from acupuncture treatment.

Plum Blossom Therapy

Plum Blossom Therapy is another acupuncture technique. By tapping acupressure points on the body with specialised plum blossoms, practitioners can stimulate energy and circulation while balancing the Mind-Body-Spirit connection. This often results in improved sleep, relaxation and overall well-being. Clinical studies have also suggested that Plum Blossom Therapy can help reduce physical pain and tension caused by stress.

Auricular Acupuncture

Auricular acupuncture is a holistic health practice that has been utilised for centuries to treat various issues and improve overall well-being. It involves the use of acupressure on specific parts of the ears, sometimes referred to as 'ear points. Acupuncture at these points works to target specific areas of the body that are either not functioning correctly or need additional support and healing. Auricular acupuncture can help reduce pain and improve physical, mental, and emotional health by naturally stimulating these areas of the body.


Teishein is also a needle-free acupuncture technique. Teishin acupuncture involves using small metal tools inserted into specific points on the body to stimulate energy flow and balance the energetic system. Teishin is a low-impact, gentle treatment that can be used to treat a wide range of issues, including headaches, insomnia, depression, and stress. It is an effective treatment for those looking for an alternative to needles or drug treatments.

Other Techniques

Some modern acupuncture techniques like aqua-acupuncture, eye-acupuncture, magnetic acupoint, acupoint injection, electro-acupuncture, and laser acupuncture can also be used. These techniques use water or electricity to stimulate the acupoints instead of needles.
