What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture originated in China and is part of a comprehensive health care system that is thousands of years old.

Chinese Medicine believes that illnesses are caused by imbalances or blockages in the flow of a person’s ‘qi’ (energy). These blockages can arise from a variety of causes including diet, hereditary factors, infection and trauma, as well as emotions such as grief, anger and worry.

Acupuncture promotes the body’s healing mechanism which in turn restores health and allows the symptoms to resolve.

Acupuncture is a safe treatment for most people including young children and the elderly. Many people use it as preventative care and it can also be used alongside conventional medical treatment.
