Originating in China, acupuncture (part of Traditional Chinese Medicine or TCM) has been tried and tested over thousands of years, giving us a detailed understanding of anatomy and the body’s energetic balance. TCM is no less scientific or sophisticated than conventional medicine in its understanding of how the body works, but to this day uses terminology that reflects Chinese culture.
Today, acupuncture is becoming globally recognised with a growing evidence-base of research to support its efficacy.
Chinese medicine focuses on ‘Qi’ or energy and its flow through the body. When there is an imbalance, there is pain and/ or illness; this can be emotional or physical. Acupuncture involves inserting very fine needles at acupuncture points on the body to help promote the free flow of Qi and restore harmony.
