How Does Acupuncture Work?
By applying the same level of focus on the prevention of illness as on the treatment of a wide variety of health conditions, acupuncture takes a holistic approach to recognising disease processes. Thus, treatments target underlying causes as well as your overall well-being and not just the presenting signs and symptoms.
Acupuncture treatments comprise the insertion of fine, sterilised, single-use needles at specific points on your body’s energy channels or meridians. This is done because illness occurs when the flow of energy along the meridians is obstructed or blocked. Through the insertion of needles, balance is restored to your energy flow and tells your body to heal itself.
This treatment which has been performed in China for over 5000 years was developed from the philosophy that restoring balance and normal functioning will both treat ailments and also prevent other illnesses from developing.
