Health is more than living without pain and disease

More and more people are beginning to realise that true health is about the quality of our whole life. The Chinese concept of the Dao (Path or Way) describes the essential balance and harmony that lies at the heart of life.

To maintain our health we need to live in accordance with this natural law.

Acupuncture is a medical system from the east which is based on the understanding of natural laws. It understands that vital energy or Qi (pronounced “chee”) flows through nature and us as human beings. Our health is dependent on the free flow of Qi. Nature has a tendency to move us all towards health whatever our current condition. Acupuncture serves to help bring people back to balance within themselves, allowing the flow of Qi to move freely again.

The value of Acupuncture is that it understands symptoms in the context of a person’s whole being. The aim is to treat the whole person, not just the condition being presented and to recover a more consistent state of vitality and balance between our physical, emotional and psychological states.
