What is Acupuncture?
Qi is the vital energy that flows through us, which consists of the opposing forces of yin and yang. It flows through 14 major channels known as meridians that link every part of the body and all the organs. To restore and maintain a positive state of health, this energy must flow freely and evenly and the yin and yang must be perfectly balanced.
If the flow of Qi is blocked or your body experiences stress (either physical or emotional) the meridians become unbalanced, resulting in illness. Single-use, sterile, threadlike needles are inserted into specific points to rebalance the energy and trigger the bodies natural healing response. The aim of Acupuncture is to treat the whole person and to restore the balance between the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of the individual. An assessment of your current symptoms, medical history, diet, digestive system and sleeping patterns will be made. Treatment may include lifestyle and dietary advice.
