What is Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ancient system of medicine based on the philosophy that our health and well-being is dependent on the smooth flow of our body’s Qi (pronounced chi), often described as life-force, vitality or energy. When this flow of Qi is imbalanced or blocked, pain and illness, whether this manifests physically or emotionally, can follow.

Ultra fine needles are inserted at precisely located points along interconnected pathways, called meridians, which map the whole body. These points connect with the body’s energy, Qi, to promote a natural healing reaction and a return to balance.

At Highgate Acupuncture, we combine Five Element and Traditional Chinese Medicine styles of acupuncture, enabling us to treat the whole person on a physical, mental and spiritual level.

People often find that as their condition responds to treatment other health problems start to resolve themselves, resulting in increased energy levels and an improved sense of well-being.

Five Element Acupuncture

Five Element theory teaches us that Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood represent our creative and controlling energies and that for a healthy, mind, body and spirit all five elements should be in balance. Each of us resonates more to one particular element and by supporting this element through acupuncture, we can achieve better health and harmony from within.
