Traditional acupuncture is a system of healing practised in China and other eastern countries for thousands of years.
Acupuncture is a holistic treatment; it treats the whole person rather than symptoms in isolation. The approach understands that the root cause of all pain and disease are Energy Blockages.
The flow of Qi can be disturbed by a number of factors; • emotional states such as anxiety • stress • anger • fear • grief • poor nutrition • weather conditions • hereditary factors • infections • poisons and trauma.
Acupuncture seeks to alleviate symptoms and pain by assisting individuals to find balance in their lives.
It is a tried and tested system of medicine and is accepted all over the world as a valid system of healthcare and in the UK a qualified acupunturist will be registered with the British Acupuncture Council, as I am.
