Acupuncture has been used in China for more than 2500 years. It is a branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine, which involves the insertion of very fine needles into the specific points on the body to "Re-balance" the flow of the body's energy. 

Energy is called "QI" pronounced 'chi' in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) and it flows through pathways called Channels or meridians. It should flow in a free , unobstructed way around the body.-much like your blood should move freely. If it does not if there is a blockage - then illness may result.  The body is like a machine and can adopt to a lot of stress and poor condition - but only for so long. 

Disease is likely to result if any warnings are ignored . The Acupuncturist, by stimulating needles in certain ways can help get the "Qi" moving again and promote a healthy environment within the body . The overriding aim is to restore balance.

Acupuncture should not be a painful treatment. Often people are surprised when they realise the needles have been put in . They are usually left for about 20 minutes during which time the patient has time to relax. The Acupuncturist may stimulate the needles manually or with a slight electric current to ensure that the correct effect is achieved. Balanced and normal function of the body's system is the aim of the treatment.
