In practical terms, acupuncture restores and maintains health by the insertion of fine needles into specific points on the surface of the body. This stimulates the different systems of the body to function at their optimum level, allowing it to re-balance and enhance itself, by using its own regenerative and self-healing powers. No drugs are used; in fact, when appropriate, drug regimes are reduced and in some cases, eliminated altogether. (In consultation with your GP).
