A fresh approach to healthcare
Modern research shows that acupuncture can affect most of the body’s systems – the nervous system, muscle tone, hormone outputs, circulation, antibody production, and allergic responses, as well as the respiratory, digestive, urinary & reproductive systems.
Acupuncture originated over 2,000 years ago in China where it is still used to restore, promote and maintain good health.
According to traditional Chinese philosophy, our health is dependent on the body’s motivating energy moving in a smooth & balanced way through a series of channels beneath the skin. This energy is known as qi (pronounced chee).
The flow of qi can be disturbed by any number of factors, e.g. emotional states such as stress, anger, anxiety & grief, as well as poor nutrition, hereditary factors, infections & trauma. When the qi is unbalanced, illness may result.
The acupuncturist inserts ultra-fine needles at chosen points along the channels of energy. The aim is to stimulate the body’s own healing response and restore natural balance.
