Acupuncture is the oldest continuously practised medical system in the world which originated in China over 2000 years ago. The underlying principal of treatment is that illness and pain occur when the body's Qi (pronounced chi) or "Vital Energy" cannot flow freely. There can be many reasons for this - emotional or physical stress, poor nutrition, infection or injury are amongst the most common causes.
After a detailed consultation, assessing your medical health, present concerns, lifestyle and dietary habits, specific acupuncture points will be identified and treated. The treatment will aim to correct the internal flow of Qi and help accelerate your body's own healing response.
Traditional Chinese medicine regards the mental, physical and emotional aspects of a person as interdependent and, only when these are balanced can we experience good health.
Acupuncture can treat a broad range of conditions and may also be used to prevent and maintain your overall health. The World Health Organisation recognises that Acupuncture is effective in treating over 40 common conditions and disorders, including, though not limited to, the following:
