Traditional Acupuncture is based on the traditional belief that energy flows in the body through specific pathways called meridians. There are twelve main meridians in our body which form a network. Each one is linked to a specific organ or function and corresponds to a particular pattern of Qi.
Acupuncturists believe that energy can become blocked or obstructed due to several factors such as emotional stress, poor lifestyle, a weak constitution
(inherited or acquired through childhood illnesses or multiple births), physical or emotional trauma and over-exertion.
When this happens we may experience pain, disease or simply ‘not feel right’.
An acupuncture practitioner will place acupuncture needles in specific points to help restore balance and help you on the way to recovery.
