About acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ancient healing art which is thought to have originated in China thousands of years ago.

Your body’s natural healing response can be activated by inserting fine needles into specific points along your body’s energy pathways.

Chinese Medicine tell us that your body is full of energy called ‘Qi’ (pronounced ‘chee’), or life force.

Acupuncture can benefit mind, body and spirit.

Over the millennia, it has developed into a highly comprehensive system of medicine which is still practised today, not only in the far eastern countries, but also in the West where it is firmly established.

From Giles you will receive an integrated diagnosis and treatment using both the Five Element and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) styles of acupuncture.

Five Element Acupuncture

Within Five Element acupuncture, your individual constitution will resonate most strongly with one of nature’s five archetypal forces: Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood. One of these will describe your essential self.

Five Element acupuncture can adjust the balance of your body, mind and spirit, and help to address your core issues.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)

This approach also uses acupuncture, to harmonise your organ functions and musculoskeletal system, for example to treat very particular symptoms and conditions.
