Acupuncture

Christchurch Acupuncturist Sachie
Acupuncture treatment uses very fine, sterile, disposable needles, which are inserted just below the surface of the skin. This does not cause pain, although you may feel a qi sensation. When the needles penetrate the skin, qi is stimulated. Stimulated qi will move, and blood will flow after qi.

It is a relaxing and painless therapy with a very low risk of side-effects, if any.
