Acupuncture is an effective and natural form of healthcare which has the following benefits:
Acupuncture is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and originated in China over 2000 years ago, making it one of the oldest health systems in the world.

Acupuncture is based on the ancient Traditional Chinese Medicine theory of energy known as Qi (pronounced chee) which flows through channels (also known as meridians) throughout the body. When the body is in balance, the Qi is abundant and flows smoothly through the channels. However, when the flow becomes blocked and is out of balance it can lead to illness or pain. This can result from many factors such as lifestyle, overwork, poor diet, environmental conditions or trauma.

Health is a state of optimal balance where all your systems function as they should.

Acupuncture is a complete medical system that focuses on treating the root of the problem and not just the symptoms. Treatment for similar conditions will vary between patients and each treatment is tailored to the precise situation as no two patients are the same.

Acupuncture aims to restore balance and harmony to the whole body by inserting extremely fine stainless steel needles into specific points on the acupuncture channels. The points used may not be close to the part of the body where the problem is experienced. For example, although you may suffer from a frozen shoulder or headaches, needles may be inserted in your legs.
