What is acupuncture? This is a wonderful natural system of medicine that restores and maintains our health.  Treatment works by activating a person’s own recuperative and healing powers. Established over 2000 years ago, Acupuncture still remains very much part of the repertoire of Chinese Medicine.

This ancient practice works with “Qi” (chee) or the vital energy within our bodies. This energy flows continuously through the meridian system. It is an energetic network linking specific points. These in turn influence our health and also our well-being in all its aspects.

The Flow of Health

We are healthy when the flow of “Qi” or vitality is clear and strong in our being. Dis-harmony and dis-ease arise when this energy flow becomes blocked or depleted. Appropriate choice and treatment of acupuncture points along the meridians and works to re-establish and maintain the energy flow. It also restores the natural balance of our body and mind.

Treatment of various points includes the shallow insertion of hair fine needles or the use of acupressure. The therapy is suitable for any age from newborn upwards. It is amazingly relaxing as it helps release our blocks and stresses. A detailed diagnostic system provides preventative therapy and corrects imbalances in their early stages.

Also, having been an acupuncturist for over 25 years now Sue just loves this truly holistic approach to health. She finds it is great to be able to treat the whole person rather than just the disease. Moreover, to work with the cause of the problem as well as the symptoms. This naturally comes with no unwanted side effects!
