Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine is a system of healing that was developed for over 2500 years.
The practice of acupuncture began with the discovery that stimulation of specific areas on the skin affects the functioning of certain organs of the body. The current practices have evolved into a system of medicine that restores and maintains health by the insertion of fine needles into points (called acupuncture points or acupoints) just below the surface of the skin. These points are in very specific locations and lie on special channels of energy that are called meridians.
Usually between 2 and 10 needles are left in the clients body for approximately 20 minutes while resting. The thought of the needles can be challenging for some people but in fact the needles used are very fine and discomfort is very brief and usually limited to a slight pricking sensation.
Acupuncture is being increasingly understood in Western scientific terms and validated by clinical trials. Its effectiveness is accepted by the World Health Organisation and recognized in many countries.
