Canterbury Acupuncture

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ancient system of healing which has been practised in the East for thousands of years. (The earliest surviving texts date from the 3rd Century BC.) It is founded on the principle that our health is dependent on the state of our vital energy or 'Qi' (pronounces ‘chee’).

When our Qi is strong and balanced, our body functions smoothly, we are less prone to physical, mental and emotional disturbance and our Spirit is calm and settled. If the Qi becomes weak, imbalanced or blocked, sickness, pain and malaise arise. By inserting very fine needles into specific points on the body – known as acupuncture points – or by applying warmth to these points, one’s Qi can be strengthened and rebalanced and its natural flow restored.
