Acupuncture has proven its health benefits for at least two and a half thousand years, making it one of the worlds oldest health care systems for the treatment and prevention. Qi (pronounced “Chee”) is the use of energy within the body, and when Qi becomes poor, excessive or fails to move freely throughout the body, it cause’s imbalances and physiological change. Stress, overwork, poor diet, lingering disease, trauma, emotional/lifetsyle factors can make changes to our Qi.
Your Raw Therapist Acupuncturist uses the finest needles to access points on the body to correct and manipulate the imbalance of your Qi. During the treatment the practitioner will draw on moxibustion (a form of heat therapy), massage, dietary and lifestyle advice to compliment the acupuncture treatment.
