Acupuncture and imbalances

Acupuncture helps your body address imbalances. Imbalances in your body may not manifest in symptoms that are recognised by your doctor to be a disease, but like many people you may still not feel well. This is because dis-ease begins with small imbalances, resulting in early, minor symptoms as the body attempts to right itself. Like weeds in your garden, the sooner you act on symptoms the easier they are to resolve usually.

However, it’s important to remember that symptoms are not bad in themselves, just as weeds are merely plants in the wrong place. They are simply an expression of the state of your ‘garden’, something determined by the resources you were born with and the circumstances of your past and current life. The more you care for your body the more likely you are to be symptom-free and able to act quickly on the ones that inevitably appear now and then in life. Symptoms are actually very helpful signs that can help you trace back to the root of your imbalance.

Whether you are suffering from long-standing symptoms, just don’t feel quite right or want to invest in your future vitality, acupuncture can help you find out what is causing your imbalances and support your body in addressing them. This is done by inserting fine needles into specific points on the body. Each of these points have individual effects on the body’s equilibrium.
