What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is part of an ancient system of healing which has been practised in China for thousands of years. It is based on the belief that the balance of an underlying energy or Qi is responsible for our well-being. The acupuncturist decides exactly what imbalance a patient has by asking a number of questions and observing their pulse and tongue.
Acupuncture is considered suitable for all ages including children and the elderly, and is often integrated with conventional medicine.
Fine sterile needles are inserted (fairly painlessly) into points. They are retained for around 20 minutes during which a deep feeling of relaxation is usually experienced. This restores the balance of Qi which can improve your well-being.
A course of treatment of around 4 to 10 sessions is often necessary, depending on the severity of the problem.
