Traditional acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicine-based practice that has evolved over the past two thousand years. It focuses on maintaining a free flow of ‘Qi’ or energy in the body, restoring the body’s natural equilibrium and enhancing its capacity to heal.
It is believed that any impediment to the flow of energy can lead to disease in the body. The philosophy of Chinese medicine views our emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing as deeply interconnected. There are many reasons for the flow of Qi to be disrupted, amongst the most common are emotional and physical stress, poor diet, lack of exercise or physical injury. With the use of very fine sterile needles, specific points on the body are accessed to restore the flow of Qi and trigger the body’s natural healing response.
Acupuncture is used in both the treatment and prevention of disease and is an important aspect to improving health and wellbeing. It is a very safe practice that treats presenting symptoms alongside the root causes, often producing profound effects.
