What is Acupuncture?


Acupuncture is based on the idea that bio-electric energy (Qi) flows through the human body along channels known as meridians. The meridian channel connects all aspects of the body into one network of energetic communication. In eastern medicine the free flow and internal balance of this energy is seen as essential for good health. Exposure to extreme or intense situations, whether physical, mental, emotional or spiritual, can cause a restriction or blockage affecting the flow and balance of this energy. This disruption in balance then ripples through the system, affecting areas of the body and causing symptoms which manifest as a range of conditions. Acupuncture aims to treat the cause which in turn affects the condition.


How does it work?


In Acupuncture fine needles are inserted into the body along the meridians on specific acupuncture points. This stimulates the flow of energy, improves blood circulation and boosts the immune system. Vital energy and essential nutrients flood affected areas nourishing and revitalizing cells and organs. Essentially acupuncture and other traditional Chinese medicine techniques aim to enable the flow of energy (Qi) and this in turn facilitates the body’s own healing mechanism. This is why acupuncture is so effective at treating such a wide range of conditions.



The WHO (World Health Organisation) supports the use of acupuncture treatment with, alongside and for conditions such as cancer, arthritis, anxiety,fertility, pain, migraine and many more.
