What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is one of the longest established natural healing systems in the world. In China and Japan acupuncture is integrated into the health system, and used extensively in hospitals.

Acupuncture works with the whole body, aiming to recover emotional, physical and mental equilibrium. Treatment involves subtle diagnostic techniques that have been refined over thousands of years, followed by the insertion of very fine needles, which stimulate points on the acupuncture channels. The needles affect the flow of your body’s qi, or vital energy, and help correct imbalances by promoting the body’s own healing response, bringing relief from many conditions. Acupuncture works on the underlying cause of illness rather than just the symptoms and is tailored to meet the specific needs of each patient.

Regular treatment gives the added benefit of improved well-being, energy levels, immunity and emotional balance.
