The general theory of acupuncture is that proper physiological function and health depends on the circulation of nutrients, substances and energy called Qi through a network connects every organ and part of the body providing balance, regulation, and coordination of physiological processes. Pain and ill-health result when th flow of Qi through the body is disrupted or blocked by many things, including disease, pathogens, trauma injuries, and medication (side-effects), as well as lifestyle factors such as overwork, poor diet, emotions, lack of rest, and stress.
Stimulation of the appropriate acu-points through acupuncture treatment help to restore sufficient, continuous and even flow of Qi and other nutrients throughout the body, thereby restoring health and balance to the body, while relieving pain and other symptoms. The acupuncturist uses a sophisticated and complex system of diagnostic methods that take into consideration the person as a whole, discerning the body’s pattern of disharmony rather than isolated symptoms. The aim is not only to eliminate or alleviate symptoms, but to treat the underlying cause, and improve the quality of life.
