Traditional Acupuncture

Acupuncture originated many thousands of years ago in China and is one of the key components of the ancient practice of TCM.  Its philosophy is greatly aligned with the Taoist tradition and represents an evolved and internally coherent system of therapeutics that has emerged through several millennia of cultural experience.

Traditional Acupuncture is holistic in nature and through a vitalistic and qualitative understanding of human nature; health is achieved through Yin and Yang forces coexisting harmoniously to support the body’s inherent natural healing abilities.  ‘Best treatment is prevention’ being one of its main principles, it addresses the total human being (Mind, Body & Spirit) and also incorporates the relationship between the individual and their surrounding environment.
