Acupuncture is a system of healing which has been practiced in China and other Eastern countries for thousands of years. Although often described as a means of pain relief, it is also used to assist people with a wide range of conditions.
Its focus is on improving the overall well-being of the patient, rather than the isolated treatment of specific symptoms. According to Traditional Chinese philosophy, our health is dependent on the body's motivating energy – known as Qi or Chi (pronounced chee) or in Western terms. Chi flows in meridians or channels within the body; needles inserted along these meridians affect the Chi that flows.
