Tradtional Chinese Acupuncture

The practice of Traditional Chinese Acupuncture is based on the theory that energy, ‘Qi’ or ‘Chi’ is carried around the body through channels called ‘meridians’.

In health, our energy moves freely and harmoniously through these channels. Signs and symptoms of disease, such as pain and discomfort, or poor functioning of our body’s systems, are indicative of a disruption to the smooth flow of energy.

Fine sterile needles are inserted into specific points on the channels to restore balance and the energy flow. The needles are usually left in place for between 20 and 40 minutes whilst you rest comfortably. Patients usually say that they find the treatment deeply calming and relaxing and frequently sleepy while the needles are in place.

Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) became an established medical discipline around 2500 years ago. Its fundamental principles, methods of diagnosis and treatment were documented in the book “The Yellow Emperor’s Internal Classic”. Evidence of its practice, however, can be traced back to the New Stone Age (between 4000 – 10,000 years ago).

TCM adopts a unique approach to disease. By taking into account the broader context of the individual’s life, from their physical and emotional state to their lifestyle, the TCM practitioner can draw on a complete picture of their condition. It is the possible to see the deeper pattern of disharmony underlying the specific systems. Treatment aims to correct the underlying disharmony.

Methods of treatment include: herbal medicine taken orally and applied externally, acupuncture/moxibustion, cupping, massage, acupressure-manipulation, surgery and special diets.
