featuredimage0Acupuncture is the system of medicine, which restores and maintains health, through the insertion of fine needles into specific points on the surface of the body.

The action of needling these points stimulates the body to rebalance itself, catalysing homeostasis by activating our own recuperative and self-healing-powers.

Traditionally, acupuncture is seen as redirecting the vital energy of the body called QI (pronounced "chi" In Chinese). This flows continuously round the meridian systems, an energetic network of channels that connects both the acupuncture points as well as each other.

These directly influence the functioning of the internal organs and other controlling systems of the body.
