"Ancient Chinese belief thought of people as being a microcosm of the universe “suffused with the same primeval forces that motivated the macrocosm”. This thinking forms the basis of Chinese medicine - an amalgamation of thousands of years of practical experience and thinking about natural health. It explains how everything that happens to a person will “stimulate, tonify, subdue or depress one’s life force.
In Chinese medicine, Qi is the motivating force behind all living things and all animate objects are manifestations of Qi. While Qi is invisible, its manifestations are real and observable. Qi streams through the body along a series of meridians and health problems can then be interpreted as issues with the flow of Qi. Ancient Chinese texts identify the acupuncture points on the body where Qi accumulates or comes close to the surface making external interaction possible.
By interacting with the flow of Qi, acupuncturists can rebalance the body and the way its organs interact to promote entirely safe and natural self-healing."
Acupuncture can be used to help treat a wide range of problems including arthritis, anxiety, back pain, coughs and colds, depression, digestive disorders, infertility, morning sickness, migraine, sciatica and many other aches and pains.
