Good Health is not just the absence of pain or disease. Traditional acupuncture as a holistic treatment can potentially help a wide range of conditions to maintain the body's equilibrium by focusing on all aspects of wellbeing, physical, mental and emotional providing an improved quality of life.
Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body to regulate the flow of 'qi', (pronounced 'chee') your body's vital energy. For a number of lifestyle and environmental reasons, qi can become disturbed, depleted or blocked, which can result in some symptoms of pain and illness, acupuncture can be an effective therapy to help restore balance and promote physical and emotional harmony.
Treatment is aimed at the root of your condition as well as your main symptoms. This approach helps with resolving your problem and enhancing your feeling of wellbeing. You may notice other niggling problems resolve as your main health complaint improves.
