Traditional Acupuncture

Treating the root to restore natural balance

Traditional acupuncture is an holistic medicine, which means the practitioner focuses on and treats each person as unique. Such an approach recognises that all problems have an underlying cause. In consequence, treatment is aimed at the root of the condition, by stimulating the body’s own healing response and restoring its natural balance.

Traditional Chinese medicine states that it is the vital force, or Ch’i energy in the body, that controls the workings of the main organs and body systems. This vital force circulates from one organ to another along channels or pathways called meridians always following a certain route. In order that each and all of these organs may be healthy and working properly and in harmony with each other, the Ch’i energy must be flowing freely and in correct strength and quality through each of the meridians.
