Back Pain, alternative medicine, chinese medicine
Acupuncture is a powerful method of healing practised in China over the last 2,000 years. Established as one of the most important components of Chinese medicine, it promotes natural healing by balancing the physical and mental facets of the body. Acupuncture itself is a means of adjusting the body’s life energy (qi) through the insertion of sterilised filiform needles into selected acupuncture points along the recognised channels of the body.
These needles, are inserted into the points and are then manipulated with a combination of gentle pumping actions, by twirling and then leaving in place for a several minutes. These techniques are used stimulate the flow of energy and remove any blockages/stagnation so that the qi may be dispersed and regulated. When the qi flows correctly throughout the body, balance is restored to the channels and the patients health improves.
