Acupuncture is a very powerful system of therapy that involves the insertion of very fine needles into precisely specified acupoints.
According to TCM theory, our bodies transmit energy or qi (pronounced chee) through pathways or ‘meridians’. In simple terms, as long as this energy flows freely throughout the meridians then health is maintained. Once the flow of energy is blocked, the system is disrupted and pain and illness result.
Acupuncture targets over 2,000 acupuncture points along these pathways to ensure the proper flow of energy through the body.
