Based on the ancient Chinese belief that there are channels of energy, flowing through the body that are important to ones health and wellbeing.
Acupuncture dates back more than 3,000 years or maybe even 4,000 years old.
Obstructions to the flow of energy along these channels can result in physical, mental and emotional imbalance, which may eventually lead to disease.
Stimulating acupuncture points releases the energy so the body can re-establish its natural balance.
Although becoming more widely used, is still not the norm.
Most medical practitioners, and much of western society , regard mainstream medicine as the only acceptable form of healthcare.
Acupuncture requires you to think about healthcare in entirely different way.
