The origins of acupuncture date back to over 2,000 in China, making it one of the oldest medical systems in the world, supporting a range of different conditions.
Theory of acupuncture
Chinese medicine acupuncture is based on the theory that there is energy flowing through the body via a number of set channels, and locations. Disruption of this flow causes disharmony in the body, and is believed to cause disease, and feelings of unwell. Traditional Chinese medicine provides an individualised treatment approach, which is why each person regardless of their condition, is treated differently from each other.
How does acupuncture work?
Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine, sterile, single use, disposable needles that are placed throughout the body, in specific locations on acupuncture channels and points. The purpose of this it to clear any blockages and obstructions of energy (known as qi), and allow the body to restore back to harmony.
