EXPERIENCE THE BENEFITS OF OUR MODERN TECHNIQUES WITH TRADITIONAL ROOTS.
WHAT IS IT?
Acupuncture is a medical system which has been practiced in China and other Eastern countries for thousands of years. Although often described as a means of pain relief, it is in fact used to heal people with a wide range of illnesses.
Its focus is on improving the overall well-being of the patient, rather than the isolated treatment of specific symptoms. According to traditional Chinese philosophy, our health is dependent on the body’s motivating energy – known as Qi (“chee”) – moving in a smooth and balanced way through a series of meridians (channels) beneath the skin.
HOW CAN IT HELP ME?
When the life force energy, Qi, is disturbed, illness can arise and a varied array of symptoms can manifest. By inserting fine needles into the channels of energy, an acupuncturist can stimulate the body’s own healing response and help restore its natural balance.
The flow of Qi can be disturbed by a number of factors. These factors include emotional status such as anxiety, stress, anger, fear or grief, poor nutrition, weather conditions, heredity factors, infection, poisons and trauma. By treating the whole person, acupuncture facilitates the body’s inner wisdom to recover the equilibrium between the mind, body, and spirit of the individual.
Clinical acupuncture and Chinese medicine is a safe, effective, and drug-free therapy that can help address a wide variety of common ailments and problems.
