Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to successfully treat many common conditions. It involves the insertion of very fine needles into the skin at specific points to increase the flow of ‘Qi’ (vital energy), blood and fluids, and to improve the immune system. Modern scientific methods have shown that the needles stimulate the release of chemicals and hormones and have a direct effect on the limbic system, as well as stimulating the body’s natural defences and boosting the immune system.
