The overall aim of acupuncture is to restore the body’s equilibrium. Acupuncture is uniquely suited to modern life in that physical and psychological areas are seen as interdependent, and reflect what many people perceive as the connection between the different aspects of their lives.
The focus is on the individual, not their illness, and all the symptoms are seen in relation to each other.
The underlying principle of treatment is that illness and pain occur when the body’s qi, or vital energy, cannot flow freely.Treatment
