Traditional Acupuncture is a system of healthcare based on ancient principles which originated in China and the Far East over 2000 years ago. Pain and illness are seen as indications that the body is out of balance. Acupuncture treatment aims to restore the body’s equilibrium. Traditional Acupuncture is practised all over the world and clinical trials are continuing to confirm its efficacy.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the physical, mental and emotional aspects of an individual are regarded as being interdependent and this philosophy feels particularly relevant to the way we live in the modern world. For example, we know that chronic pain and illness can have an emotional effect, making us feel low or depressed, and we also understand that emotional issues such as stress and anxiety may manifest in physical problems such as migraines or digestive disorders. The overall approach of Traditional Acupuncture is holistic, aiming to restore balance on every level. You are treated as an individual as opposed to just the presenting symptom.
Acupuncture treatment provides the opportunity to take time just for you, to be yourself and to relax in a quiet, calm environment.
