Acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles into specific sites (acupuncture points) along the body’s meridians to clear energy blockages and encourage the normal flow of qi through the individual. The practitioner may also stimulate the acupuncture points using other methods, including moxibustion, cupping and massage, in order to re-establish the flow of qi.
What is qi? (pronounced ‘chee’)
Qi is the term for your “life energy” which flows through the body’s meridians (a network of invisible channels that run through the body).
This ancient form of healthcare is now a popular choice for many people seeking natural treatment of a variety of illnesses and imbalances arising from today’s busy lifestyles. These include:
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Pregnancy related issues
- Neck, lower back, elbow and shoulder injuries
- Nerve pain
- Stress related issues
An acupuncture treatment can result in feelings of deep relaxation, euphoria and a general sense of light and balance. Many people report feeling like they are “floating” after a session. Therefore, as well as seeking treatment of specific disharmonies, many people enjoy regular treatments to maintain their health and well-being in order to enjoy their life in a pain free and harmonious way.
