It is a system of healing that uses fine needles being inserted into channels of energy in the body known as QI (chi). This method can stimulate the body’s own natural healing and help restore balance. It has been successfully practised in China and other Eastern countries for thousands of years and focuses on overall well-being as well as the treatment of specific symptoms. Our health is dependent on this Qi moving in a smooth balanced way through a series of channels beneath the skin. When this Qi becomes unbalanced, illness may result. Many common complaints can be treated with acupuncture, especially soft tissue injuries, eg. tennis elbow, achilles tendonitis, neck and shoulder pain, lower back spasm and many more. Margaret Taylor uses acupuncture in her treatment of soft tissue injuries.
