Acupuncture

Acupuncture is the practice involving inserting thin needles into specific body parts to improve health and well-being. Traditional acupuncture is based on Chinese medicine principles that have been developed and researched over 2,500 years. It recognises pain and illness as a sign of body imbalance and works to correct it. Research indicates that acupuncture can aid the activity of body's pain-killing chemicals (endorphins). The National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) has now endorsed acupuncture as an effective treatment for relief of low back pain. Following are some of the conditions which respond well to acupuncture.

When our body, mind and emotions are healthy we feel alive, full of energy, clear headed and happy. As an acupuncturist, I see the body as a harmonious flow of energy needing nourishment, activity and rest to maintain balance.

When our mind, emotions and body are blocked, depleted or used improperly, our sense of harmonious balance disappears, giving rise to all the symtoms of illness. According to Traditional Chinese medical theory Acupuncture can assist the body in healing itself by clearing the blockages and restoring healthy flow.
