Traditional Chinese Acupuncture dates back some 5,000 years, making it one of the world's oldest systems of medicine.
The aim of Acupuncture is to rejuvenate the mind, body and spirit, promoting relaxation and stimulating a person's own healing power by harmonising their vital energy called Ch'i or Ki. This vital energy travels through the body along pathways called meridians. The effect of good Acupuncture however, is to do more than simply cure the symptom. Acupuncture directed at restoring the overall energy balance will deal with the condition, as well, help the patient feel better in a general way.
Many people come to Acupuncture for help with a specific symptom or condition, for example anxiety, arthritis, asthma, back pain, circulatory problems, depression, menstrual problems, migraines, rheumatism, or skin conditions. Extensive practice and worldwide research has shown Acupuncture's effectiveness in helping these and many other conditions.
