Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine

Classical and Traditional Chinese Medicine is a profound and highly sophisticated medical system that dates back thousands of years and is currently still a major part of healthcare in China. The aim of Chinese Medicine is to treat the underlying disharmony and improve overall well being rather than simply alleviating symptoms.

Acupuncture is a Chinese Medicine therapy that involves the insertion of very small, thin needles into prescribed points of the body to redirect the flow of "qi" (or energy) throughout the body in order to restore balance. It is commonly known as a method to manage injury, reduce pain, and promote relaxation, but it can also be used to treat disease and restore optimal health.
