What is Acupuncture ?

Acupuncture is an ancient system of healing, for which written evidence can be traced back over 2000 years. Its practice in China and other Eastern countries can be traced back far beyond this. Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine needles into specific points of the body. These stimulate energy which flows through the body along a series of channels under the skin, encouraging the body’s own healing response. Acupuncture aims to treat the whole person by helping to re-establish the natural balance. Acupuncture is a safe, drug-free treatment that can improve a person’s sense of well being and restore their energy. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine the body is dependent on an energy or life force to maintain health and harmony. This energy is known as Qi. The flow of Qi can be disrupted by many things including: o     emotions o     stress o     lifestyle o     infections o     diet o     trauma o     toxins o     and even climate. This leads to illness and disease which manifests differently in each individual, whether physically, emotionally or spiritually. Acupuncture, by treating the whole person, helps to recover that equilibrium.
