ACUPUNCTURE

Traditional Chinese medicine explains that good health is the result of a harmonious balance of the complementary extremes of yin and yang in the life force known as Qi or chi. Qi is said to flow through meridians or pathways in the human body. Through more than 350 acupuncture points in the body, these meridians and energy flows may be accessed. Illness is said to be the consequence of an imbalance of the forces. If needles are inserted into these points with appropriate combinations it is said that the energy flow can be brought back into proper balance.

In the West Acupuncture is explained through neuroscience. Acupuncture points are seen by western practitioners as places where nerves, muscles and connective tissue can be stimulated. Acupuncture practitioners say that the stimulation increases blood flow while at the same time signaling the brain to commence repair work, thereby triggering the activity of our own body’s natural painkillers.

What To Expect

Single-use disposable needles will be inserted into various key points in your body, you will typically be asked to lie down, dependent on your condition. Your practitioner will talk you through the entire process and people are often surprised by how pain-free the process actually is. Acupuncture can also be used as preventative medicine. Many people see their acupuncturist only 2-4 times a year for a “tune up” or “balancing” treatment. This can prevent disease and promote health, energy and vitality.
