Western Acupuncture

“Most of the varieties of western medical acupuncture are based on an understanding that the insertion of needles has an effect on nerves which can release muscles, over-ride brain signals, and so on. There are very often chemical changes in body fluids associated with treatment” B.A.C (British Acupuncture Council)

Eastern Acupuncture

“From an eastern point of view, the patholology and physiology of the body is understood very differently. This is not just in China, but in Japan, India and other East Asian cultures where acupuncture is practiced. The energies of all matter, both organic and inorganic, are thought to be manifestations of a single universal energy or force called 'qi', the movement and balance of which in the human being is seen as directly linked to the health of the individual. Inserting acupuncture needles in specific points is believed to harmonise and improve the flow of qi, and this understanding can be used both locally if the qi of a specific limb is affected, or systemically if the symptoms are an expression of a deeper underlying disorder. Qi in balance allows all physiological functions to return to normal.” B.A.C
