Traditional Acupuncture is based on ancient principles which go back nearly two thousand years. It is a gentle and effective treatment that focuses on the whole person, aiming to improve your entire health, wellbeing and restore the body’s equilibrium.
Traditional Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body to regulate the flow of qi, your body’s vital energy. For a number of lifestyle and environmental reasons, qi can become disturbed, depleted or blocked, which can result in some symptoms of pain and illness.
In certain instances, traditional acupuncture can be an effective therapy to help restore balance and promote physical and emotional harmony.
What are the benefits of traditional acupuncture?
A growing body of evidence-based clinical research is discovering how the body responds to acupuncture and its benefits for a wide range of common health conditions.
Many people have acupuncture to relieve specific aches and pains, such as osteoarthritis of the knee, TMJ, headaches and low back pain, or for common health problems like an over-active bladder. Others choose acupuncture when they can feel their bodily functions are out of balance, but there is no obvious diagnosis. Many have regular treatments for health maintenance, especially during the change of seasons.
