Traditional Chinese Acupuncture

is a healthcare system based on ancient principles which go back nearly two thousand years.

How It Works

Traditional Acupuncture has a very positive model of good health and function, and looks  at pain and illness as signs that the body is out of balance. The  overall aim of acupuncture treatment, then, is to restore the  body’s equilibrium What makes this system so uniquely suited to  modern life is that physical, emotional and mental are seen as  interdependent, and reflect what many people perceive as the  connection between the different aspects their lives. 

Based on traditional belief, acupuncturists are trained to use  subtle diagnostic techniques that have been developed and  refined for centuries. The focus is on the individual, not their  illness, and all the symptoms are seen in relation to each other.  Each patient is unique; two people with the same western  diagnosis may well receive different acupuncture treatments. 

Traditional acupuncturists believe that the underlying principle of  treatment is that illness and pain occur when the body’s qi, or vital  energy, cannot flow freely. There can be many reasons for this; emotional and physical stress, poor nutrition, infection or injury  are among the most common. By inserting ultra-fine sterile  needles into specific acupuncture points, a traditional  acupuncturist seeks to re-establish the free flow of qi to restore  balance and trigger the body’s natural healing response. 

A growing body of evidenced-based clinical research shows that  traditional acupuncture safely treats a wide range of common  health problems.
