Practiced in China for over 5000 years and vastly becoming the most accepted form of alternative medicine in the West. Based on a series of channels in the body which are referred to as ‘Meridians’, each have points which run along it which can be stimulated by small needles to increase the flow of energy (Qi or Chi) within the body.
The purpose of this stimulation is to influence physiological, emotional and psychological functions in the mind and body. (Chinese medicine has always acknowledged that the mind and body are inter-related).
The benefits of acupuncture are extraordinary and can assist with pain and stress relief, hormonal balancing, headaches, gynaecological and dietary complaints to name but a few.
