Acupuncture is a system of healing which has been practised with great effect for thousands of years. Our health is dependent on the smooth, uninterrupted flow of subtle energy that runs through inter-connecting channels known as meridians in the body.
The flow of energy gets disturbed by stress, anxiety, poor nutrition, infections or trauma.
When energy or Qi stagnates or diminishes, discomfort, pain or disease ensue.
Acupuncture addresses the symptoms as well as the underlying cause of dis-ease.
An integrated approach in Acupuncture
I practice Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and 5-element acupuncture.
Both are holistic in nature.
TCM treats the underlying physical cause of disease or imbalance whereas 5 -element acupuncture is based on the premises that your particular underlying 'element' is out of balance and upsets your equilibrium. This may manifest on a more emotional or spiritual level.
As an integrated system it addresses the whole person, from the physical to the spiritual.
