Traditional Acupuncture has been used to great effect in the East for thousands of years. Using Chinese principles of Yin and Yang, of energetic balance and the flow of Qi the acupuncturist brings harmony by inserting fine needles into specific points in the body, the balance achieved provides an environment for healing and health.
Over many years different Schools of acupuncture have developed through observation of nature and how each person is influenced by both the external and the internal environment. The body is seen as a microcosm of the macrocosm and treatments are designed to bring the body in tune with nature and the world around us.
Different types of acupuncture and specialties are practiced at SJOA including ‘5 Element style’ Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Japanese acupuncture, Ear acupuncture, scalp acupuncture, and fertility acupuncture.
