What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles into acupoints as the means of influencing and directing therapeutic change. 

 This initiates a ripple effect that therapeutically affects both the physical and the psycho-emotional dimensions of the patient. As such, Qi is the level of mediation within the Mind-Body dynamic.


Acupoints are specific locations along the course of meridians that run the length and breadth of the body. They provide portals through which we can communicate with the body to adjust specific physiological and pathological substances and processes.


The channel system, also known as meridians, forms the extension of the mind down through the body. It can loosely be described as the energetic pathways that link the surface of the body to the internal organs and physiology within.


Qi (pronounced Chi) is a form of energetic information. A skilled acupuncturist is facilitating healthy re-calibration of homeostasis and balance within the patient on the level of Qi to promote and restore health.

Effectiveness of Acupuncture

Personalised approach to health

Each acupoint has specific actions on the Qi, offering an energetic portal through which a practitioner can access and influence a patient’s health. There are 359 standard acupoints with numerous additional ones giving a total repertoire of almost 2,000 acupoints, all regarded as having very specific actions for which they will be chosen according to the diagnosis and treatment strategy. Used in concert together, treatment will typically involve activation of approximately 4 – 10 acupoints with the hair-breadth needles left in place for 20 – 30 mins.
