Acupuncture/ Chinese Herbal Medicine
Acupuncture is a system of healing which has been practised in China and other Eastern countries for thousands of years. Although often described as a means of pain relief, it is in fact used to treat people with a wide range of illnesses it’s focus is on improving the overall well-being of the patient, rather than the isolated treatment of specific symptoms. According to traditional Chinese philosophy our health is dependent on the body’s motivating energy-known as Qi-moving in a smooth and balanced way through a series of meridians (channels) beneath the skin. Qi consists of equal and opposite qualities-Yin and Yang-and when these become unbalanced, illness may result. By inserting fine needles into the channels of energy an Acupuncturist can stimulate the body’s own healing response and help restore it’s natural balance. The flow of Qi can be disturbed by a number of factors: emotional states, such as anxiety, fear, stress, anger or grief, poor nutrition, hereditary factors, infections, poisons and trauma. The principle aim of Acupuncture in treating the whole person is to recover the equilibrium between the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of the individual.
