Acupuncture is a system of medicine which restores and maintains health by the insertion of fine needles into specific points on the surface of the body. This action stimulates thebody to rebalance itself by activating our own recuperative and self-healing powers.
Traditionally, acupuncture is seen as redirecting the vital energy of the body - the Qi (pronounced 'chee' in Chinese) which flows continuously around the meridian system, an energetic network of channels that not only connects the acupuncture points to each other but also directly influences the functioning of the internal organs and other controlling systems of the body.
