- Acupuncture is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine that originated in China over 5 000 years ago. This science and art of healing has become widely accepted over the past three decades, and is proved to be safe and effective. The human body can be likened to a highly complex electrical circuit. Like any electrical circuit, it must be kept in good working order if it is to function effectively. If the human circuit breaks down the result is illness. This can come in many forms including migraine, headache, muscular skeletal conditions, and sciatica. Acupuncture provides a holistic approach to the treatment of disease and illness, linking body, mind and emotions.
