Acupuncture is a whole-body treatment that inserts tiny needles into the skin to restore your body's natural balance and improve your health.
What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese practice based on the principles of natural law - Yin and Yang, the Five Elements of life, and the energy force "Qi" (say "chee"). It has been used for thousands of years to treat physical complaints, and to keep people happy and healthy.
Acupuncture is based on the idea that our bodies are mapped by paths or "meridians"; life-energy (Qi) flows around our bodies along these paths. When the Qi is flowing properly, we feel well - in body, mind and spirit. On the other hand, when this flow of energy is blocked, or not balanced, we develop problems with our health and well-being.
