What is the theory behind Acupuncture?
“Qi”, or “life energy”, circulates through our bodies in a complex network of pathways. When we are in good health our Qi is abundant and circulating smoothly. When there is a problem in mind, body or soul the Qi is disrupted and causes distortion and reduction in the flow. Life's challenges and trauma impacts on our health and wellbeing.
Acupuncture points are key points along these energy pathways, through which we can affect the body’s flow of Qi by the insertion of special fine needles. Acupuncture then can serve to open up areas of Qi obstruction. It can fortify areas of weakness and redirect the body’s energy to restore balance.
