  • It involves the insertion of extremely fine pre-sterilised needles at predetermined points on the body’s surface to restore health on a physical, psychological and emotional level.
  • Acupuncture can be used alone or combined with other forms of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
  • In TCM the human body is seen as an energy system. The Chinese call this vital system Qi (pronounced ‘Chee’) The Qi flows along specific pathways (Meridians) in the body.
  • The severity of the illness and the location of the illness will depend on where and how the flow of Qi has been affected. Acupuncture can directly balance the flow of Qi in order to restore health.
  • The World Health Organisation recognises Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) as a viable means of treatment for a wide range of conditions.
