How does it work?

Traditional Acupuncture as practised by a member of the British Acupuncture Council is a holistic system of medicine based on over 3000 years of development and refinement in the Far East.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, in addition to blood vessels and nerves there are other channels or meridians through which energy (chi promounced chee) flows throughout the body.  If this energy flows freely the body, mind and emotions are all healthy.  When this freeflow of energy becomes blocked or stagnates it gives rise to the whole range of symptoms that we recognise as pain, illness and emotional imbalance.
