A BRIEF HISTORY OF ACUPUNCTURE

Sep 14, 2021

Acupuncture is rooted in thousands of years of history that originated in China, backed by evidenced based research it is favoured to treat a wide range of conditions.  

The Chinese discovered that there are pathways (known as meridians) that run throughout the body and carry a vital energy called Qi (pronounced “chee”). For several lifestyle and environmental reasons, Qi can become disturbed, drained or obstructed. Consequently, this can lead to an imbalance resulting in pain or illness.  

Acupuncture can be an effective therapy in restoring balance and stimulating physical and emotional wellbeing. The skill of an acupuncturist lies in the ability to make a traditional diagnosis of your body’s disharmony in reference to Traditional Chinese Medicine principles.
