How Does Acupuncture Work?
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), our health and wellbeing is dependent upon the integrity of the body’s energy (Qi) and its ability to move freely and smoothly throughout the entire body. For a number of lifestyle and environmental reasons, Qi can become disturbed, depleted, stuck or imbalanced, resulting in illness or pain. Through the insertion of fine needles, acupuncture helps restore the flow of Qi energy and its natural balance returns, thus promotes both physical and emotional harmony.
What are the potential benefits?
In many cases not only is there relief from presenting conditions, but many people notice other niggling health problems resolve themselves as treatment restores balance and promotes physical and emotional harmony. Acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment for people of all ages, including children and the elderly.
How can we help?
Many people have acupuncture for help with certain conditions or symptoms. From clearly defined complaints like osteoarthritis of the knee to general feelings of ill health and low energy. Others simply choose acupuncture as a preventive measure to strengthen their constitution, maintain good health and enhance wellbeing. It can be very effective when integrated with conventional medicine.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an ancient medical system that has been practised in China for over 2500 years. It provides a holistic approach to the management of disease and maintenance of health.
An acupuncturist uses their skill to make a traditional diagnosis from what is often a complex pattern of disharmony and from there develops a unique and individual treatment plan tailored to meet the needs of the patient to create equilibrium between the physical, spiritual and emotional planes.
