How Can Heartburns Be Reduced During Pregnancy?
15 Jun 2015

Heartburn is one of the most common problems that a woman experiences while she is pregnant. This usually takes place during the later months of pregnancy. Also known as acid reflux, this symptom usually results from indigestion and produces a sensation of burning in the throat and oesophagus, accompanied by an acidic and sour taste.

Acupuncture Doesn't Hurt
06 May 2015

There are a lot of people who do not try acupuncture because they feel scared that the needles will hurt them or that they will have an unpleasant experience. This is a real tragedy because acupuncture really has the capability of effectively treating different kinds of chronic health conditions, which doesn't respond well to other kinds of treatments.    I have been practising  acupuncture in Northern Beaches for years and I  have used it to treat both adults as well as children.

Patients of this age even did not experience any kind of discomfort.    It is true that nobody likes n ...Read More
