What is Acupuncture?Acupuncture is a system of healing that has been practiced for over 2,500 years and originated in China and other Far Eastern cultures.
Acupuncture is a gentle and effective treatment that focuses on helping the whole person, aiming to improve their overall health and well-being and today it is widely used and accepted all over the world. Rather than just focusing on specific signs and symptoms, as practitioners we aim to explore the underlying cause of disease.
Acupuncture to bring you back to balance
Acupuncture treatment is carried out by inserting a few fine needles into points on your body which are carefully chosen by your practitioner. The points are linked to "channels" or "meridians" along which energy known as "Qi" flows. When energy becomes disturbed or blocked, this can lead to emotional distress or physical illness. Acupuncture stimulates the body's natural healing powers by encouraging the patient's own energy to return to health and balance.
Whether you want to have acupuncture as a standalone therapy or alongside other conventional treatment you are receiving, Chinese Medicine theory provides a firm foundation upon which to base a personalised treatment plan to support your recovery and well-being.
