What is Acupuncture
Acupuncture forms part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, an ancient system of healing that taps into the bodies energy (Qi). It has been practised in China and the Far East for over 2500 years and has become increasingly popular in the west since President Nixon’s visit to China in 1967.
It taps into the bodies Qi to correct and harmonise its flow, relieving pain and restoring health and wellbeing. Through ongoing research, the British Acupucture Council has shown that treatment can benefit pain and discomfort associated with arthritis, symptoms of menopause, headaches, anxiety and stress conditions.
Although acupuncture is often thought of as a treatment for pain it has many other benefits ranging from relaxing and energising the body to promoting improvement in general well-being.
