Acupuncture is an ancient practice that originated in China over 5000 years ago. The treatment is performed by manipulating thin, sterile disposable needles, which are inserted into acupuncture points in the skin.These points lie on meridians which are pathways of electrical energy mapped on the body. Stimulating these points can correct imbalances in the flow of Qi (energy) in the meridians. To Maintain a positive state of health this energy must flow freely. If the flow of Qi is blocked or the body experiences emotional or physical stress the meridians become blocked resulting in illness.

Acupuncture is a holistic treatment which aims to restore the balance between mind and body thereby enabling the body to fight illness to its maximum ability.
