Acupuncture is a tool in traditional Chinese medicine. Very fine needles are used on the acupuncture, or energy points located on the meredians all over the body.

It requires a thorough knowledge of the human anatomy and physiology, the underlying pathology and an understanding of Chinese traditional philosophy, to effectively manage ailments.

Acupuncture works on traditional theories of ‘YIN & YANG’, the ‘FIVE ELEMENTS THEORY’ and the principle of ‘QI’.

Yin & Yang represent the two opposing, but co-existing, forces of nature namely water & fire, cold & heat, wetness & dryness, inhibition & excitement, conservation & transformation. Yin & Yang also represent the way humans attain the homeostasis of their being.

The "Five elements", according to traditional Chinese medicine, are Water, Fire, Wood, Metal and Earth. The interplay of these elements represents the different processes of nature which is required to maintain a state of balance in nature. As we are part and parcel of nature, we and our anatomy and physiology are the off-shoot of these natural processes. When these processes are in balance, there is "health". An imbalance causes "dis-ease". Acupuncture helps to bring in a state of balance of these forces by the judicial application of acupuncture needles at various acupuncture points.

"QI" is the energy or prana, as we term it which when in balance indicates health and when not in balance indicates disease.

In modern scientific concepts, acupuncture is effective through the release of neuro-transmitters called endorphins. Endorphins bring about analgesia and a sense of wellness.
