About Acupuncture

Acupuncture was established in China approximately 2,500 years ago and is now practiced across the globe. It can be used to treat a wide range of conditions and is also important in the prevention of illness.

Instead of focusing solely on specific symptoms, traditional acupuncture views the individual as a whole. Consequently, an acupuncturist will look at the physical, emotional and mental aspects of health and wellness, to provide a holistic method of treatment.

Treatment involves inserting extremely fine needles into specific points in the body to regulate the flow of Qi along pathways in the body. In traditional theory, illness can be attributed to deficiency, excess, or blockage of Qi in these pathways. Therefore, treatment aims to restore the normal balance of Qi and stimulate your body’s natural healing response.
