Understanding the Principles of Acupuncture
Acupuncture stems from traditional Chinese medicine and it consists of inserting fine needles into specific areas in the body. These points are located along energy “meridian” lines which aim to increase the flow of energy “Qi” and this helps to restore balance, heal and reduce pain.
Westernised Acupuncture Methods
There are also other more westernised ways of doing acupuncture, such as dry needling and trigger point needling, which means inserting needles into tight muscle areas to relieve tension.
