The QI moves through a system of channels called meridians. Inserting fine needles at certain points into these meridians can stimulate the body’s own healing response and restore its natural balance.
The primary aim of acupuncture is to restore a person’s equilibrium on all levels physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually improving the overall well-being of the patient, rather than just isolating the symptoms.
Acupuncture is also highly effective as a preventive measure to benefit and maintain health e.g. to strengthen the immune system. It can also be helpful for people trying to overcome addictions.
In addition to acupuncture, our practitioners use a variety of traditional techniques including guasha, moxa, cupping (myofascial release) and tuina.
