Traditional acupuncture forms a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine where the basis of diagnosis and treatment is that the mind and body should be in perfect balance. It involves the stimulation of specific acu points, situated all over the body, with either heat, pressure or needle insertion. This process is believed to adjust and alter the body’s energy flow into healthier patterns.
This ancient system of healing has developed over 2,500 years originating in China and other far Eastern cultures. It is a gentle and effective treatment that focuses on helping the whole person, aiming to improve their entire health and wellbeing and today is widely used and accepted all over the world.
The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends acupuncture as an effective treatment for over forty medical conditions.
