Acupuncture is one of the oldest forms of healing known to mankind.
originated in China several thousands of years ago. The long term
survival of acupuncture is a convincing tribute to its effectiveness.
It uses the subtle energy Qi, which moves through a series of
channels beneath the skin known as meridians. The continuous
and balanced flow of Qi through these meridians is essential for
health. When the body sends out distress signals in the form
of any symptom whether physical, mental or emotional it is
a sign that there is an imbalance of Qi, which must be rebalanced
to restore health. This is an important principle of traditional
acupuncture because it means the underlying cause of the
disease is being dealt with rather than the symptom.
