Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese method of treating a myriad of health conditions. It works by helping the smooth flow of energy or Qi, pronounced chee, travel around the body, using energy channels or pathways called meridians. When you are healthy the flow of Qi is regular and balanced, but when the flow is interrupted or disrupted disease or pain occurs. Acupuncture is performed by placing a small number of sterile needles into points on the body, which to help balance and improve the flow of Qi in these meridians.

 

Today Traditional and Five Element Acupuncture are fully integrated by the practitioner to cope with all the needs of modern life in a holistic way, this can benefit a myriad of conditions, according to the British Acupuncture Council.
