Acupuncture at MClinic

Acupuncture is a healing system originating in China, which dates back thousands of years. At the heart of Chinese medicine is the idea that energy called ‘qi’ flows through energy pathways (meridians) in our body. Qi corresponds to our vitality. Each meridian relates to an organ or group of organs and governs particular bodily functions. If the qi is flowing freely, it would help to maintain health and well being. An imbalance or blockage of qi may lead to
illness. Qi must be harmonized in order to maintain good health.
The acupuncturist restores balance to the flow of qi by inserting small needles at acupuncture points which lie along the meridians close to the surface of the skin. The practitioner may also
stimulate the acupuncture points using other methods, including cupping, moxibustion, electrostimulation and Tuina (Chinese massage), in order to re-establish the free flow of qi.
