What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a complementary therapy that involves the insertion of fine needles into the skin at specific points on the body.

Traditional acupuncture is a holistic healthcare system that regards pain and illness, whether physical or mental, to be a sign that the body is out of balance. Because traditional acupuncture considers every bodily function to be connected and interdependent, it recognises the role emotions play in illness and disease. The overall aim of treatment is to restore the body balance.

Traditional acupuncture treats the whole person, body and mind, and not just the symptoms.  It’s been researched, refined and developed for centuries and is now widely used and accepted all over the world.

Acupuncture is part of an ancient and sophisticated form of medical treatment which originated in China, but has increasingly spread throughout the world.
