Acupuncture originated in China and other Eastern cultures, where it has been used to treat disease and restore and maintain good health for thousands of years.
Today, acupuncture continues to be a fundamental part of mainstream healthcare in China and is now widely accepted and used here in the UK, either as a standalone therapy or alongside conventional biomedical treatment.
Maintaining good health is dependent on our bodies functioning in a balanced way. When the systems of the body become out of balance, this leads to disease.
Through the insertion of thin steralised needles at specific points on the body, acupuncture activates and optimises your body’s own healing mechanisms in order to restore balance.
In Chinese medical theory, the exact pattern of imbalance is unique to each patient. Therefore, diagnosis and treatment are specific to you and your condition.
