Acupuncture is a system of healing that has been practised in China and other Eastern countries for thousands of years.
Acupuncture began with the discovery that stimulating certain areas of the skin affected the functioning of certain organs. It evolved into a system of healing as these connections became fully understood.
A person’s health is dependent on the smooth flow of energy through the channels or meridians of the body. If this flow is disrupted then the body has to work harder to stay healthy and symptoms of illness can develop.
By inserting fine needles into the channels of energy, an acupuncturist can stimulate the body’s own healing response and restore its natural balance.
In the West acupuncture has been misleadingly publicised as being good only for specific conditions such as pain relief or weight loss. However, acupuncture is a complete system of medicine and experience and research has shown that it can be used to effectively treat a vast range of conditions.
