Acupuncture -How it can help
Acupuncture is one of the oldest forms of traditional medicinal treatment. It is steeped in knowledge of the human body that has been acquired over millennia!
The healing system of Acupuncture is based on the concept of meridians. Meridians are channels that go through the whole body, they are the pathways that carry our life energy, known as Qi. In Acupuncture, we believe that it is blocks in the energy channels that cause our body to go out of sync resulting in imbalance in different parts of the body.
This is why, when I see a patient I look at the patient as a whole. I study their diet, their lifestyle and try to identify the root cause of the pain and discomfort.
We live such fast-paced lives, with our attention being split across multiple factors which generates a lot of stress and anxiety. Sometimes, just so we can cope, our body holds that stress in certain regions of our body, causing our Qi to stagnate. This stagnation of Qi throws our body out of balance and affects our health and well-being.
By using acupuncture I can help bring your body back to a state of harmonious equilibrium. By releasing the blocks in the Qi I can facilitate the smooth flow of energy which will bring your body to a state in which you can enjoy optimal health.

Patients come to see me for a wide range of conditions:
- digestive issues
- musculoskeletal problems
