Acupuncture is the practice of treating people using needles and the Chinese system of medicine that governs which points are used.
People have been treated for thousands of years using acupuncture. Ancient texts describe a complex but fascinating insight into how the human body works. Acupuncturists use this tried and tested theory and apply it to modern complaints.
A traditional acupuncturist views the body as a reflection of the greater world. As such, the body is in constant, dynamic interaction with the environment. Health in this system is not static, but rather the ability to adapt gracefully to all the changes and challenges that life sends ones way. Anything from environmental conditions (for example living in a damp house) to dietary choices and the emotional stresses that work/life throws up can upset this delicate balance and create illness. A healthy person can manage these changes while maintaining their health.
What does acupuncture do?
Acupuncture rebalances the body to positively affect health. The effects can be subtle, giving you a calm relaxed feeling while at the same time being able to help with real physical and emotional issues that many people experience day to day.
