This ancient Chinese practice is based on the belief that health is determined by Qi (pronounced ‘chi’), the vital life energy that flows through every living thing. This energy flows through the body along pathways called meridians, each of which is linked to a specific organ. If something interrupts this flow, various problems including pain can result. Acupuncture, through the insertion of very fine needles at specific points in the body, can help restore the correct energy flow. Relief may be experienced after just one treatment and best of all – it’s virtually painless. Whether you have a specific condition or just want to explore this particular therapy, acupuncture treatments are available at the Sanctuary with our experienced therapists.
