How it Works
Concept of Qi
‘Qi’ (energy or life force) flows through our bodies in channels/meridians.
‘Qi’ -Is the motive force of all physiological activities.
When the ‘Qi’ flows abundantly there is health. When there is an imbalance/blockage or stagnation in the flow of ‘Qi’ eg when the body becomes ‘stressed out’ our health can become compromised.
As Acupuncture treats the person as a whole, it does not separate the mental and physical health. Acupuncture stimulates the body to heal itself and restores the natural flow of Qi through the body thereby helping to restore the natural balance of your mental, physical and emotional functions.

- The treatment then with very fine sterile acupuncture needles being inserted at appropriate points in the body which stimulate your own body’s healing, addressing and helping to restore the natural balance.
