Acupuncture takes an holistic approach to understanding normal function and disease processes and focuses as much on the prevention of illness as on the treatment. When healthy, an abundant supply of qi (pronounced chee) or life energy flows through the body's meridians, a network of invisible channels through the body. If the flow of qi in the meridians becomes blocked or there is an inadequate supply, then the body fails to maintain harmony, balance and order and disease or illness follows. This can result from stress, overwork, poor diet, disease pathogens, weather and environmental conditions, as well as other stress causing lifestyle factors. Acupuncturists who may have the necessary experience you require are located in Central London, North West London and Hove.

Acupuncture is part of an integrated system of primary health care, known as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that has an uninterrupted history of development dating back thousands of years.
