Acupuncture has been part of traditional Chinese medicine for over two thousand years.
The basic concept is that disease is seen as an imbalance in the system flow within the body. Treatment is carried out by inserting needles at particular points, which lie along the meridians; each meridian is linked to a particular organ. Physical, emotional, mental and environmental pressures or disorders can affect the flow of energy along the meridians, causing imbalance. The aim of treatment is to restore the balance.
