What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a powerful ancient healing art that delivers short, medium and long term results. It evolved in China over 2000 years ago, and its solid principles have resulted in its original methodologies still standing true today, even withstanding contemporary scientific testing.
The underlying philosophy of acupuncture is that in order for the human body to function optimally, it has to maintain balance across all its internal systems. The ancient Chinese referred to balancing the yin and yang.

How Does Acupuncture Work?
Another term, Qi or Chi [pronounced “chee”], refers to our Life Force energy. Qi is most commonly known as the body’s bioelectricity found within the body. It is the thinking that it circulates throughout the body via meridians (pathways/circuits/neuro pathways) and, through a daily rhythm, it maintains the yin-yang balance. Fourteen meridians create a network of acupuncture points and, when we are healthy, the Chi flows through the network uninterrupted. Injuries, illness and stress can block the flow, which creates Qi stagnation, and you experience pain, stiffness, swelling.
The Qi is accessed and unblocked via acupuncture points and means of very fine, specialised, one-use needles. Finger pressure, heat and suction cups are also used. When expertly done, the free-flow of Qi is achieved, giving you pain relief, improved vital functions, improved health and a better quality of life.

What Are The Tools Of Acupuncture?
Acupuncture needles - these are not the needles you see in doctors’ offices. These are highly specialised/specific, extremely slender threads made of stainless steel, copper, or other metals. Their length varies from 0.9 mm (earlobe needles) or ranging over 150 mm long for deep muscle use. You may feel an initial pressure with the insertion of the needle followed by a deeper potentially electrical sensation. This sensation indicates that your practitioner is in the correct location and should reassure your confidence.
When electro-acupuncture is used, this may speed up the results comparatively to normal acupuncture.
