Acupuncture Originated in China over 5000 years Ago

As part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), acupuncture is based on the concept that disease results from disruption in the flow of qi and imbalance in the forces of yin and yang.

The term acupuncture describes a variety of procedures involving the stimulation of anatomical points on the body using a variety of techniques including moxibustion, cupping, laser therapy and electro-stimulation.

The acupuncture technique that has been most often studied scientifically involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles into specific sites (acupuncture points). The practitioners at the clinic use pre-sterilised single-use disposable acupuncture needles of the finest quality.

Acupuncturist may assess the tongue, skin, pulse and eyes as these areas are seen as major indicators of overall health and well-being.

The Five Elements

The Five Elements

To the Chinese, and to any people who live from the Earth, the closeness and importance of Nature are understood. They live in the Elements, depend on the cycle of the seasons, survive according to the laws of the universe, and reverse the flow and changes of the world around them. They watch, heed, learn and steep themselves in the Elements so basic to life. Just as Nature all around them is going through its natural process of change, they instinctively know that the Nature inside them follows these same patterns, that intuitively human beings go through the cycle of the seasons within themselves, that the Elements are recreated within them.

Each Element is ever present and ever basic to life. It is not just in the world around them – that the tender shoots of spring are bursting into life; it is also within themselves. It is not only in summer that things bloom and flourish, but also within them, and so on with all the seasons. We are the seasons. We are the Elements. Nature is without and within us, in each of us, in every moment. We are a replica of the universe passing from season to season in a natural unending cycle of life

The interaction of the Five Elements brings harmony and everything is in order. At the end of one year the sun has completed its course and everything starts anew with the first season, which is the beginning of Spring.  This system is comparable to a ring which has neither beginning or end.
