What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an ancient practice of natural healing from the Orient and is one form of the traditional Chinese system of medicine which has been used very effectively for over 5000 years. Acupuncture is gaining respect in the western world as its practice has grown spectacularly over the last 3 or 4 decades.

Acupuncture involves the stimulation of certain specific points on the body to enhance the flow of vital energy (Chi). Chi travels on the surface of the body and through internal organs. In traditional Chinese medicine, the central belief is that for the body to function at its peak it must be in balance.

Acupuncture benefits

According to the AACMA, there are a range of benefits of acupuncture including:

  • Acupuncture addresses the underlying cause of a problem, as well as the symptoms, to provide an overall holistic approach to the issue at hand.
  • Helps in the prevention against disease and the maintenance of general well-being.
  • Drug-free pain relief focus.
  • Can be effective in the treatment of acute and chronic ailments (see The Acupuncture Evidence Project for more information).
