During the last three decades we have witnessed considerable growth and development in the use of complementary medicine, acupuncture being the most widely used.
The traditional Chinese view is that QI (energy) flows freely when the body is in a healthy state. If there is a problem, energy stagnates or is blocked.
The stimulation of appropriate acupuncture points frees this stagnation. Research shows that acupuncture stimulates the brain to produce natural pain relieving chemicals (endorphins) and there is scientific evidence to support the effects of acupuncture.
The conditions acupuncture may help include:
- Acute/chronic injuries
- Back/neck pain
- Muscle and joint problems.
