By using fine needles inserted at specific points on the body, acupuncture aides the flow of energy or ‘Qi’ around the body’s energy channels or meridians. It is the correct, balanced flow of this energy which leads to health and wellbeing; stagnation or blockages result in ill health and disease. By taking this approach to achieving and maintaining good health, acupuncture can offer a potential solution to problems that may have been resistant to other treatments and can help improve your sense of wellbeing – even if you have no particular problem but just feel ‘out of sorts’.
Traditional Acupuncture is a system of traditional medicine that has been in use for over 2,000 years. It still features in mainstream healthcare in China and is often used in combination with western medicine. It is now one of the most popular forms of complementary medicine throughout the world.
