About Traditional Acupuncture

Acupuncture and traditional Oriental medicine originated in China and other far Eastern cultures but is now widely used all over the world to restore, promote and maintain good health.

Acupuncture works to help maintain your body’s equilibrium. It involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body to regulate the flow of Chi, the Chinese term for your body’s vital energy.

Traditional 5 Element 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.
