Acupuncture is becoming an increasingly popular, safe and effective choice of treatment in the West and can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions.
It offers a way of optimising health and wellbeing. From beginning in China over three thousand years ago, acupuncture has developed across the world to become one of several branches of medicine that is contributing towards public healthcare.
Acupuncture is a natural, non-toxic system of medicine. The principal method of treatment involves rebalancing the flow of energy known as Qi that runs throughout the body. It is blockages in this energy that causes the disharmony that can lead to illness and emotional problems such as stress and anxiety.

The Qi is accessed by inserting very fine needles at specific points along the body’s energy pathway (meridians) and this actions allows our body to correct the flow of energy to alleviate the symptoms.
