Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) have been around for thousands of years. The roots of TCM involve uncovering underlying imbalances and the signs and symptoms that are expressed by each individual. By looking at the multitude of systems that make up the human body and how they relate to one another we can start to recognise patterns that are leading to or causing disease. As humans we are extremely resilient and we want to be in a state of balance or homeostasis. Acupuncture as a medical system, is about creating balance between the dynamic fluctuations of Yin and Yang. This relates not only to our mind and body but also to our internal and external environments.
Acupuncturists will work with you to promote, maintain, restore, or improve health, to prevent a disorder, imbalance, or disease or to alleviate pain.
