Originated in China, over 3,000 years ago, acupuncture is thought to be one of the oldest forms of medicine.  Traditionally Chinese believe that energy flows through the body via specific channels, and when these became blocked illiness or pain would occur. Acupuncture was used to promote, maintain and restore good health by promoting the flow of energy or  “Qi” (pronounced  Chee).

Modern science has shown that  acupuncture is believed to stimulate the nervous system, influencing the production of the body’s communication substances – hormones and neurotransmitters. The resulting biochemical changes activate the body’s self-regulating homeostatic systems, stimulating its natural healing abilities and promoting physical well-being.
