About Acupuncture in Reading
Acupuncture is a tried and tested system of complementary medicine. The Chinese and other eastern cultures have been using acupuncture to restore, promote and maintain good health for thousands of years. In China acupuncture is used in mainstream health care, both as a stand alone therapy and in combination with conventional western medicine.
According to traditional Chinese philosophy, our health is dependent on the body’s motivating energy moving in a smooth and balanced way through a series of channels beneath the skin. This energy is known as Qi.
Acupuncture uses fine single use sterile needles to connect with the energy or Qi of the body via a system of pathways known as meridians. The intention is to restore the natural healthy balance of the body and to promote healing.
