Traditional Chinese Acupuncture

Traditional Chines Acupuncture Therapy TamesideAcupuncture is a system of healing which has been practised in China and other Eastern countries for thousands of years. Its main focus is on improving our overall well being, rather than the isolated treatment of specific symptoms.

Running throughout the body is an energy force known as Qi. The flow of Qi within the body influences a person’s health and well being - when a person is healthy Qi moves in a smooth flowing and balanced way through a series of channels in the body, called meridians. Through various factors Qi can become unbalanced and the flow insufficient and illness can occur. By inserting fine needles onto the meridians, an acupuncturist can stimulate the body’s own healing response and help restore its natural balance.

Acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is the culmination of around 2,000 years’ worth of observational research and health study.

Each initial appointment is approximately 90 minutes to allow the practitioner to spend more time examining your case and planning the best course of treatment. Each treatment is custom tailored to each individual matching their needs, lifestyle and condition to achieve maximum treatment effect. Subsequent sessions are 60 minutes.
