acupuncture & traditional chinese medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine has a long history of over 5000 years. The body’s vital energy (known in English as “Chi” or “Qi”), flows through channels, also known as meridians. Modern scientific research has recently confirmed the existence of the body’s meridians using infrared thermography.
When the flow of vital energy is functioning properly, the organs and systems are working together in harmony. However, if there is a blockage of the Qi, or an imbalance, Qi backs up the flow in one part of the body and restricts flow in other parts. This results in disease, disharmony and dysfunction.
Re-establishing regular flow of Qi is achieved through needling specific, carefully selected points using thin, sterile needles. This practice is safe, free of side effects and highly effective.
