What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an ancient, holistic practice which has been used and developed for over five millennia, treating and managing both the underlying cause and the symptoms of a problem in one, using a simple but effective needling technique. Working on the whole body, acupuncture boosts the body's ability to heal itself throughout, bringing about impressive results in a remarkably quick timescale without the use of medication.

The body exists of energy (which can actually be measured in microvolts!) and this energy flows continuously until disrupted by injury, poor diet or negative thoughts and emotions - which is when pain, illness or emotional disruption can set in. Acupuncture is a technique in which tiny, sterile needles are placed into the body's 'energy pathways' to return a correct and balanced flow of energy to all areas of the body and to stimulate your natural healing systems into working as they should.
