Acupuncture is a time tested therapy that has been practised in the Far East for thousands of years. The philosophy behind the treatment is that energy lines or meridians circulate around the body. These meridians contain our energy flow, or ‘qi’.
consists of equal and opposite qualities – Yin and Yang. It is when this qi is impaired through the body that imbalance and illness occurs. Our health is dependent on our qi moving in a smooth and balanced way through a series of channels beneath the skin.
The aim of acupuncture is to treat the whole person to recover the equilibrium between the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of the individual.
How will I benefit?
By inserting fine needles into the channels of energy, an acupuncturist can stimulate the body’s own healing response and restore its natural balance. In this way the body’s equilibrium can be restored and the illness resolved.
