Acupuncture is an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), a comprehensive medical system used to diagnose and treat illness, prevent disease and improve wellbeing. It can be traced back thousands of years. According to TCM, good health depends on your Qi or life-force flowing freely through your body in a network of channels or meridians. Any interruption to this flow can result in imbalances, blockages or stagnation, which can lead to illness.
Acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles into specific acupuncture points to clear energy blockages and encourage the normal flow of Qi, thereby helping your body to balance and heal itself. It is the world’s largest drug-free health care therapy and is compatible with Western medicine.
