Traditional Acupuncture

 

Traditional acupuncture is a holistic healthcare system that regards pain and illness, whether from a physical or psychological cause, 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’s equilibrium.

The fundamental principle is that illness and pain occur when the body’s qi, or vital energy, cannot flow freely. The body’s energy meridians can become obstructed, this can be for any number of reasons such as emotional and physical stress, poor nutrition, infection or injury.
