The ancient art of Chinese Medicine has been practiced in the East for more than 4000 years and is now growing in popularity in the West. But what is it that makes this remarkable therapy so unique and what can you expect during a treatment?
In essence, the Chinese Medicine system is quite similar to conventional medicine as it is pragmatic and based on knowledge developed by observation over time. The distinct difference being that the Chinese system includes a fundamental “vital energy”, called Qi, into the physiological process.
Qi is a universal concept and is said to be present in everything. It can be found in the earth beneath your feet and in the warming rays of the sun, as well as the food you eat and air you breathe. When Qi flows freely around the body in a network of channels, commonly known as meridians, the health will be optimal. Should there be an excess or deficiency of qi or any disruption to the flow then the body will fall into “dis-ease”.
The Chinese Medicine system understands that the mind, body and spirit are interrelated to a person’s health. It is therefore important to consider a range of signs and symptoms, in a holistic view of the body, when diagnosing each person. Acupuncture is a technique that applies the theory of Chinese medicine to the healing of the individual by using very fine needles or “pins”, placed on certain meridian points around the body, in order to restore a balanced state of health.
Acupuncture is a technique within the Chinese Medicine system that uses very fine “needles” on particular points around the body. The needle and point combination is used to remind the body to perform a certain function that it hasn’t been successfully completing, therefore allowing the body to rebalance itself and heal.
There is positive scientific evidence that Acupuncture can provide signifcant results in the management of conditions such as:
– chronic pain
– migraines and headaches
– emotional disturbances including anxiety & depression
– male and female fertility
