Acupuncture encompasses an holistic view of the body through the prisms of the meridian, neurological and fascial systems.

At Focus Physio the intention is for acupuncture to be painless.  We only use high quality, very fine, single use sterile disposable Japanese needles. 

The location of needle insertion will be decided by presenting issues and palpation of the meridians, pulse and abdomen. 

For children or sensitive adults with an extreme aversion to needles, we can use a method of meridian stroking with blunt non insertion tools called shonishin.
