Acupuncture

Traditional acupuncture is a holistic approach to disease management and health
maintenance based on a 2500-year history. The principal aim of acupuncture is
to restore and maintain equilibrium between the patient’s physical, emotional and
spiritual aspects. The basic premise of Oriental medicine is that health is dependent
on the body’s life energy or “qi” flowing in a smooth and balanced way through the
network of meridians (channels) connecting all major organs. Qi consists of equal
and opposite qualities, known as yin and yang. When these become unbalanced, the
result is illness. The acupuncturist restores balance to the patient’s qi by inserting
fine disposable needles into the channels of energy, stimulating the body’s own 
natural healing mechanisms and correcting the imbalance.
