Acupuncture is a complementary treatment derived from ancient Chinese medicine and based on patterns of energy called Qi (pronounced chi), which flow through the body and are essential for good health and wellbeing. It’s believed that disruptions to this flow are responsible for disease.
A method of balancing the nervous and organ systems, fine needles are used at points on the body to return Qi flow to normal. Helping to alleviate pain and treat various medical conditions. The body has an amazing ability to self-repair and the use of Acupuncture enhances this repair mechanism plus improves recovery time.
