Traditional Chinese Acupuncture is a anciant practice, which has its roots firmly imbedded in 5000 years of Chinese healing tradition. What can Acupuncture do for you? Due to it's individual approach and unique system of diagnosis, Acupuncture can benefit a wide spectrum of acute and chronic illnesses as well as playing an important role in the prevention of illness. Illness is often found to have its origin on the energetic level before manifesting in the physical body. These energetic imbalances first show themselves as an indefinable feeling ‘out of sorts’, dis-ease, ‘not being themselves’ and/or perceiving stress. Further down the line, more physical signs may appear and if ignored, may manifest as a more serious illness at a later stage. The philosophy underlying Traditional Chinese Medicine, sees a person as the unity of body, mind and spirit. Acupuncture can be used to treat on all of these levels to restore balance and well-being. On the first appointment a detailed history is taken, the appointment will last an hour and a quarter.
