What is Acupuncture
Chinese acupuncture, also known as traditional acupuncture, is a branch of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) which has been used for thousands of years. Today, traditional acupuncture is considered one of the most popular forms of complementary medicine used worldwide.
Chinese acupuncture uses fine needles, inserted at certain points of the body to promote the flow of energy (also known as Qi) around the body’s energy lines, or meridians. Tradition believes that it is when this energy is blocked, that ill health and disease develop.
So, Acupuncture works by helping the body to get more out of its own natural healing resources by working from in the inside-out, Where as western medicine works from the outside-in.
When our energy lines are balanced, we are able to maintain good health and well-being..

Acupuncture – how it may help you
Western medical acupuncture is the use of acupuncture following a medical diagnosis. It involves stimulating sensory nerves under the skin and in the muscles of the body.
This results in the body producing natural substances, such as pain-relieving endorphins. It’s likely that these naturally released substances are responsible for the beneficial effects experienced with acupuncture.
A course of acupuncture usually creates longer lasting pain relief than when a single treatment is used.
Traditional acupuncture is based on the belief that an energy, or “life force”, flows through the body in channels called meridians. This life force is known as Qi (pronounced “chee”).
Practitioners who adhere to traditional beliefs about acupuncture believe that when Qi doesn’t flow freely through the body, this can cause illness. They also believe acupuncture can restore the flow of Qi, and so restore health.
