In Chinese medicine this energy is called Qi - the vital energy mixed together from our food, air and inherited constitution.

It provides the power for growth, development, movement, maintenance of body temperature, protection against illness and disease, and regulation of functions.

Qi can be disrupted or blocked in many ways: physical and emotional trauma, stress, anxiety, lack of exercise, overexertion, seasonal change and poor diet are among the many things that can influence the quality, quantity and balance of Qi.

Normally, when a disruption or imbalance occurs the body can easily bounce back, returning to a state of health. However, if the disruption is prolonged or excessive, or a body inherently weak, then illness, pain or disease can set in.

By examining this underlying cause and its effect,  the most appropriate acupuncture treatment can be selected for you. By treating every person as a unique individual with different needs, acupuncture naturally strengthens the body’s regulation and self-healing capabilities.
