About Acupuncture

What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese practice that involves placing fine needles at specific points in the body’s surface. It is based on the concept of Qi or vital energy, which in the healthy body circulates constantly throughout the body. Each acupoint is connected in lines called ‘meridians’. An imbalance of life force or energy along meridians may result in physical symptoms relating to medical conditions. 

 

Is Acupuncture Safe?

Yes it is! Acupuncture takes a holistic approach to health. It is a natural and safe treatment which is increasing in popularity in the western world. What initially began as a novel approach, Acupuncture has now become a mainstream method to treat people suffering from disorders who are not responding to more conventional medical techniques.
