Acupuncture is an ancient form of Chinese medicine involving the insertion of solid Acupuncture needles into the skin at specific points on the body, which correspond to points on Meridians, to achieve a therapeutic and healing effect.
Acupuncture is used to encourage natural healing, improve mood and energy, reduce or relieve pain and improve function of affected areas of the body. It is safe and effective and is often successfully used as an alternative to medications or even surgery. No drug is injected; the needles alone create the beneficial effects.
What is a Meridian?
This distribution network called the Meridian System looks like a giant web, linking different areas of our body together. Its pathways make up a comprehensive yet complex body map that supplies vital energy to every part of the body. Philosophically, this system explains how we live & why we become sick.
Pain and Illness are a result of Qi that has been disrupted due to physical and emotional trauma, stress, poor diet, lack of exercise/fitness, overexertion etc. The use of Acupuncture, as well as our other complimenting therapies, can correct such disruptions by adjusting the flow of energy and remove blockages in the body.
As long as Qi (Vital Energy) flows freely throughout the meridians, health is maintained.
