Acupuncture is an ancient system of treatment with a history of over 2500 years.
It focuses on precise adjustments to the body’s living systems. Illness arises from the disharmony of bodily processes. Acupuncture works to return the body to its natural pattern (health). Acupuncture facilitates the body’s intrinsic healing response, seeing no separation between body, mind and emotions.
It is widely considered to be beneficial for a range of illnesses and symptoms, from clearly defined complaints such as headaches, vomiting, neck ache, back ache and dental pain, through to more general feelings of ill health such as nausea or low energy.
