WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture is a form of treatment that works on energetic pathways known as the Meridian System. This system is an intricate network of channels that connects the deepest components of the body, such as organs and vessels to the more superficial structures of the body, such as the skin and muscles. It uses the insertion of fine, sterile, disposable needles to stimulate points along selected meridians to affect different aspects of the body, resolving blockages and promoting harmonious communication.

It is rooted in Taoist philosophy relating to ideas of effortless action, naturalness and internal energetic regulation. It relates to principles such as duality, better know as Yin and Yang in Chinese Medicine, and the laws of the Five Elements underlying all patterns of nature.

Like all Holistic treatments it encourages the body to harmonise and maintain balance, supporting optimum health and well being.
