Acupuncture

Millions of Chinese can't be wrong! For over five thousand of years acupuncturists have used needles and other methods to stimulate pressure points in the body in order to relieve pain and help alleviate health disorders.

Each person has an energy circulation. To maintain good health, it is essential for the body's energy, as well as the blood, to circulate in a continuous and unobstructed manner. The pathways through which the energy flows are called meridians and these circulate through the organs and tissues of the body. The energy which flows along the meridians is called Qi (Chi). These meridians were mapped out by the ancient Chinese and there are over 500 acupuncture points

Acupuncture is an element of Traditional Chinese Medicine which works on stimulating these acupuncture points to release energy restrictions using techniques such as needling, cupping or moxibustion to rebalance the flow of energy (Qi) through the meridians.

The goal of acupuncture therapy is to establish a healthier state of body function and to increase the capacity to cope with stress.

This science and art of healing has become widely accepted over the past three decades. It has now been established as a profession in Australia and has proved to be safe and effective.
