Acupuncture

Traditional acupuncturists believe that the underlying  principle of treatment is that illness and pain occur when the body’s Qi or Chi, or vital energy, cannot flow freely. There can be many reasons for this; emotional and physical stress, poor nutrition, infection or injury, are among the most common. By inserting ultra-fine sterile needles into specific acupuncture points, a traditional acupuncturist seeks to re-establish the free flow of Qi/chi to restore balance and trigger the body’s natural healing response. A growing body of evidence-based clinical research shows that traditional acupuncture safely treats a wide range of common health problems. The World Health Organisation (WHO) acknowledges traditional medicine as part of primary health care.
Acupuncture is a safe and drug free intervention. Once well monitored, acupuncture should have a definite affect after a couple of sessions, meaning prolonged treatment is not needed. Sometimes top up sessions are recommended at the patients discretion. Acupuncture is safe to have alongside conventional medical treatment.
