Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese form of medicine which aims to restore the balance of energy in a persons body by the insertion of very fine needles into specific acupuncture points on the body. This virtually painless procedure aims to stimulate the flow of energy in the body leading to increased circulation of energy and blood and thus alleviates many of the experiences of both chronic and acute disease. The theory behind acupuncture is that if everything is moving and flowing freely we are well and once stagnation sets in all disease is possible. Acupuncture here in the west is often only thought of for painful conditions as this is how it was first introduced, however probably half the people I see now will come with other problems like anxiety, sleeplessness,infertility,stress related problems etc. Acupuncture is indeed a complete system of medicine that treats many conditions, as we are treating the person not the disease.
