Acupuncture and Wellbeing
Health is More than the Absence of Obvious Disease.
Good health is not just the absence of pain or disease. Traditional acupuncture works to maintain the body’s equilibrium by focusing on all aspects of wellbeing; physical, mental and emotional.
Chinese Medicine is a safe method of healing, based on thousands of years of experience.
The Smooth, Balanced Flow of Energy Maintains Health
According to traditional Chinese understanding, our health is dependent on the body’s motivating energy (qi or chi) moving in a smooth and balanced way through a series of channels beneath the skin.The flow of qi can be disturbed by any number of factors, including emotional states such as anxiety, anger, or grief, as well as poor nutrition, hereditary factors, infections, and trauma. When the qi is unbalanced, the body is more vulnerable to illness.
To Cure a Disease Treat the Root, Not Just the Branches
Treatment is aimed at the root of your condition, as well as your symptoms. The acupuncturist inserts ultra fine needles at chosen points along the channels of energy. The aim is to stimulate the body’s own healing response and restore its natural balance. This approach can lead to a more permanent resolution of your problems.
