Traditional Chinese Medicine Williamstown & Newport
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture has been a piece of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) for thousands of years. It involves embedding small/fine needles into specific points on the skin in order to stimulate the flow of energy to be restored, and therefore ease pain and allow for the restoration and healing of optimal function.
The establishment of Chinese acupuncture is about one of balance, Yin and Yang polarity and energy force called Qi. This energy, or life force, circulates around the body through invisible channels named meridians. If the stream of Qi is interfered with, then illness, pain and disease may follow. By inserting fine needles into specific acupuncture meridians, and encouraging stimulation of Qi in the flow disruption can be restored and pain removed.
