What is Acupuncture?

acupuncture imageAcupuncture as you may already know goes back many thousands of years and is based on using all of the senses and the earth's elements. So by observation, listening, smelling, touch and taste linked with the elements of fire, water, earth, wood and metal the acupuncturist will be able to diagnose and treat your specific ailment. I would look for a certain syndrome that is out of balance within your system. This could include damp, heat, cold and wind which would be looked on as pathogens invading your body. How the Qi passes through our body's is based on meridian lines – these pathways represent certain organs in our body and by strategically placing needles into specific points your natural balance will be restored.
