Acupuncture, one of the oldest systems of medicine, is now used all over the world to restore, promote and maintain good health. It is used both as a stand-alone therapy and in combination with conventional western medicine to help treat a wide range of acute and chronic conditions. Traditional acupuncture works by helping to restore balance to your body's vital energy or 'qi'.

Most people come to acupuncture for help with a specific health condition, such as pain associated with osteoarthritis of the knee. Some use acupuncture for help with more general symptoms, such as nausea, or because they feel generally unwell but have no obvious diagnosis. Others choose to have treatment as a preventative measure to help maintain good health or to improve their feeling of well-being.

Acupuncture treatment is aimed at treating the root cause of your condition as well as your main symptoms.
