Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine which has been practiced for thousands of years in China and other Eastern countries. Since making its way west, it has become one of the fastest growing alternative therapies and is often used to complement and enhance the benefits of conventional medicine. It is an ancient system of healing where patients are treated as individuals and the focus is on them, rather than their disease or illness.
Acupuncture is based around the ancient view that good health is the harmonious balance of qi. Qi (chi) is the vital life force that empowers the body. When the qi can flow freely, we are healthy. If this energy becomes blocked, the results is a deterioration of well-being. The acupuncturist aims to release blocked energy by applying sterilised needles to key points on the body to stimulate the qi. This will then restore balance and improve health.
The World Health Organisation has identified that acupuncture can treat many conditions successfully. There are also plenty of additional conditions which centuries of empirical data have shown acupuncture treats effectively but for which there is little or no modern western research.
