Acupuncture is a system of healing which has been practised in the East for thousands of years. Although often described as means of pain relief, it is in fact used to treat a wide range of illnesses. Its focus is on improving the overall well being of the patient rather than the isolated treatmeant of specific symptoms.
According to Chinese philosophy, our health is dependant on the body’s motivating energy, known as Qi, moving in a smooth and balanced way through a series of channels. Qi consists of equal and opposite qualities; Yin and Yang and when these become unbalanced, illness may result. The flow of Qi can be disturbed by a number of factors. These include emoctional state, such as anxiety, stress, anger, fear or grief, poor nutrition, weather conditions, hereditary factors, infections, poisons and trauma.
