About Acupuncture

Traditional acupuncture is a healthcare system based on ancient principles which go back nearly two thousand years. Traditional Chinese Medicine looks at pain and illness as signs that the body is out of balance. Physical, emotional and mental symptoms are viewed as being interdependent on each other. The overall aim of acupuncture treatment is to restore the body’s equilibrium.

How it Works

The theory behind acupuncture treatment is that the healthy functioning of the body is governed by the flow of “qi” (often translated as “energy”) through a system of channels under the skin. When this flow of qi is impaired, illness occurs. By inserting fine needles at various points along the channels, the body’s balance can be restored and the illness resolved.

What it can be used to treat

The focus is on the individual, therefore treating each patient as an individual is key to treating with acupuncture and vital in assisting the body to rebalance itself.
