Acupuncture is an ancient and holistic system of healing. It treats the whole person to improve general wellbeing as well as helping individual symptoms.
According to traditional Chinese philosophy, our health is dependent on the body’s energy (known as Qi) moving smoothly through a series of channels, or meridians, beneath the skin. Qi is made up of equal and opposite parts: Yin and Yang. When there is an imbalance of these two parts of our energy, we may experience illness.
Our trained and experienced acupuncturists insert fine needles into the skin at very specific points on the body. This is believed to encourage the body’s ability to heal itself and to restore its natural balance.
