There is always music amongst the trees in the garden, but our hearts must be very quiet to hear it.
Acupuncture is safe and can be used alongside conventional medicine
Traditional acupuncture is a safe and effective practice, which can be used alongside conventional medicine. By inserting ultra-fine sterile needles into specific acupuncture points along the acupuncture meridians which cover the body, a traditional acupuncturist seeks to re-establish the free flow of energy (Qi or Chi) to restore balance and trigger the body’s natural healing response. As acupuncture aims to treat the whole person rather than specific symptoms in isolation it can be effective for a range of conditions.
Acupuncture focuses on the individual, not the illness
