Traditional Acupuncture is an ancient form of healthcare which originated in the Far East several thousand years ago and is now practised all over the world. It involves the use of very fine needles at specific points in the body to work on the energy of a person. Acupuncture aims at treating the person on a holistic basis. Traditional acupuncturists are trained to focus on the individual, not on their illness and all the symptoms are regarded as inter-related. Each patient is treated uniquely so that two people with the same western diagnosis may well receive different acupuncture treatments. Pain and illness are seen as signs that the body is out of balance. The overall aim of acupuncture treatment is to restore the body's equilibrium.
To discover how acupuncture might help you, see a selection of evidence-based fact sheets from the British Acupuncture Council's website or look at the World Health Organisation's document “Acupuncture: Review and Analysis of Reports on Controlled Clinical Trials” which lists the range of diseases and disorders that acupuncture has been proven to treat effectively.
Lack of sleep, stress, anxiety, pain, trauma and the environment in which we live are all examples of factors that can deplete our energy. Acupuncture aims to restore this energy to enable us to live our lives to the fullest.
