Acupuncture is a therapeutic practice within Traditional Oriental Medicine that entails inserting needles into specific locations to stimulate the body's healing energy or 'Qi' (pronounced chee).

Once perceived as mysterious and poorly understood in the Western world, acupuncture is now gaining recognition worldwide as a safe and reliable form of treatment.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), health is viewed as a state of harmony and balance, requiring physical and emotional flexibility to respond to life's demands. Various factors can disrupt this equilibrium, causing our energy to become stuck or depleted, making us more susceptible to illness. Acupuncture works to maintain the body's equilibrium and, in certain circumstances, can effectively restore balance, promoting physical and emotional harmony.

Who seeks acupuncture?

People seek acupuncture for specific symptoms, such as relieving pain from conditions like osteoarthritis of the knee. Some opt for acupuncture when feeling generally unwell without a specific diagnosis. Others choose acupuncture to enhance their overall well-being. It is suitable for all ages, including babies and children, and can complement conventional medicine.

What can acupuncture do?

Acupuncture can be sought for specific symptoms or conditions, for maintaining good health as a preventative measure, or to improve general well-being. Since traditional acupuncture aims to treat the entire person rather than isolated symptoms, it can be effective for a variety of conditions.

Treatment plans vary as acupuncturists address the individual, not just their condition. Patients can inquire about others' experiences to gain an understanding of what to expect. Many return to acupuncture due to its perceived benefits and relaxation.
