Acupuncture is considered primarily as a means of pain relief, but it is in fact used to treat people with a wide range of illnesses. Its focus is on treating the root of the problem and improving the overall well-being of the patient, rather than the isolated treatment of specific symptoms. According to traditional Chinese philosophy, our health is dependent on the body’s motivating energy – known as Qi  (pronounced ‘Chee’) – moving in a smooth and balanced way through a series of meridians (channels) beneath the skin.

Acupuncture evolved as a holistic approach to the management of disease as well as the maintenance of health.  It is well-documented by scholars and doctors since 400BC. The skill of an acupuncturist lies in their ability to make a diagnosis from what is often a complex pattern of disharmony. The exact pattern and degree of disharmony is unique to each individual and it will be treated as such with a personalised treatment plan.

Acupuncture in China still features in mainstream healthcare, both as a stand-alone therapy and in combination with both conventional western medicine and herbal medicine. It is now widely used and accepted all over the world, with some excellent research showing its mechanisms as well as what conditions it can help.
