What is Acupunture?

Acupuncture is an essential part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), a comprehensive system of health care with a clinical history of over 4000 years.

Acupuncture is used to diagnose and treat illness, prevent disease and improve well-being. It works with the natural vital energy (called Qi) inherent within all living beings to promote the body’s ability to heal itself. If the flow of Qi is insufficient, imbalanced or interrupted, illness may occur.

How does it work?

The ancient Chinese discovered that our life force (Qi) flows through invisible channels in the body called meridians. These meridians are connected to our internal organs. Along the meridians are acupuncture points and when a small sterile needle is inserted in these points it stimulates the Qi.

You may experience a sense of heaviness or electricity in the area of insertion. Most patients find the treatments very relaxing and many fall asleep during the treatment and rest.

If you want to improve your physical, emotional and mental health, acupuncture is worth considering.
