Acupuncture

A persons energy (Chi) is distributed through twelve energy pathways. Fine, sterile stainless steel needles are inserted into specific points just below the skin. The points are located on the channels along which the energy flows and by stimulating these points, the flow of energy is altered. This in turn restores the balance of our health.

Acupuncture is now an important part of allied health in the UK. Acupuncture and herbal medicine offers an holistic approach to the management of disease and the preservation of health. One's health is dependent on various internal mechanisms of the body such as the immune system or endocrine system functioning properly.  There are many factors that can upset the body's internal regulation in these areas such as stress, poor diet, injury and infection.  By inserting and manipulating fine needles into channels at specific points acupuncture creates a stimulating effect and can help improve the function of immunity, repair and hormonal imbalances.  Treatment empowers the client to promote natural healing and restore balance in oneself.
