Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a holistic system of medicine originating in China and dating back thousands of years. By recognising and utilising the immense potential the human body has to adjust, repair and rebalance itself, acupuncture can treat the root cause, and not just the symptoms, providing both health care and disease management.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) our health is dependent on Qi, the body’s motivating energy, which flows smoothly and balanced around the body.  If this flow is impeded problems can occur.  These include emotional states such as anxiety, stress, anger, fear or grief, poor nutrition, weather conditions, hereditary factors, infections, poisons and trauma. By inserting fine needles into channels of energy an acupuncturist can correct this imbalance, stimulating the body’s own healing response.
