What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is one of the main forms of treatment in traditional Chinese Medicine. It involves the use of sharp, thin needles that are inserted into the body at very specific points. This process is believed to adjust and alter the body’s energy flow into healthier patterns, and is used to treat a wide variety of illnesses and health conditions.

Who can benefit?

The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends acupuncture as an effective treatment for over forty medical problems, including allergies, respiratory conditions, gastrointestinal disorders, gynaecological problems, nervous conditions and disorders of the eyes, nose and throat, and childhood illnesses, among others. Acupuncture has been used in the treatment of alcoholism and substance abuse. It is an effective and low cost treatment for headaches and chronic pain, associated with problems like back injuries and arthritis. It has also been used to supplement invasive Western treatments like chemotherapy and surgery. Acupuncture is generally most effective when used as prevention or before a health condition becomes acute but it has been used to help patients suffering from cancer and AIDS.

How does acupuncture affect the body?

Acupuncture is an ancient traditional Chinese technique used to promote overall health. The process includes strategically inserting sharp needles through the skin on specific energy points. Traditionally, it was believed to activate energy flow and was widely used to treat several health conditions.

Modern research has shown that acupuncture stimulates the central nervous system and activates the natural healing processes of the body. The practice has been proven beneficial for people suffering from a wide range of health conditions, including allergies, respiratory and gastrointestinal disorders and childhood illnesses.
