Acupuncture
To many in the west acupuncture and its workings seems strange and even alien, but in fact, its fundamental theory is far less fanciful when we consider all the other processes going on around us. We all know that electricity travels thousands of miles along cables and wire and fuels a multitude of devices in our homes – even though we never see it. We are also aware that mobile phones and computers are now capable of transferring huge amounts of information invisibly and remotely across not only the planet but even out into space and back. All this we are aware of, and yet we still find it hard to believe that the human body, by far the most amazing, complex and awe-inspiring creation of all, could have developed its own invisible network through which to feed and inform the body. Acupuncture shows us our own internal wireless networks, gives us access to the world-wide web of our bodies and allows us to influence and heal the physical and emotional workings of our personal lives by affecting the very stuff of life itself.

Acupuncture works excellently alongside Western Medicine, but it can also get to those places that Western Medicine finds it hard to reach. This is because it can make sense of seemingly random symptoms and get to the root cause of illness. Acupuncture treatment can also be used to prevent disease and is excellent at improving general health and well being.
