Acupuncture is a system of healing which has been practiced in China, Japan and other Eastern countries for thousands of years.

According to traditional acupuncture theory, our health is dependent on the body’s motivating energy, known as qi, moving in a smooth and balanced way through a series of channels beneath the skin. By inserting fine needles into acupuncture points found along the channels, an acupuncturist can stimulate the body’s own healing response and help restore its natural balance. The practitioner’s focus is on improving the overall well-being and health of the patient, rather than just the isolated treatment of specific symptoms.

The flow of qi can be disturbed by a number of factors including: poor nutrition, climatic conditions, infections, poisons, trauma, hereditary factors and emotional states such as anxiety, stress, anger, fear or grief. The principal aim of acupuncture in treating an individual is to restore the equilibrium between the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of the whole person.
