Let your body relax so the healing process can begin.
Acupuncture is an ancient form of health care that uses very fine sterile needles inserted into the skin along a network of pathways called meridians. The needles are used to stimulate the circulation of blood and qi (energy) that flows through the body; at times of dis-ease when the body is out of balance this natural flow can become blocked, disturbed or diminished. By using a selection of carefully chosen acupuncture points the body can initiate it’s revitalising matrix.
Acupuncture has been used in the treatment of a wide variety of health and well being issues for over 3 thousand years, the philosophy of Chinese medicine is based on the body as a whole and fully integrated system, so therefore any minor physical or emotional disturbances will impact on your over all sense of vitality and health.
Susan practices are based in Battersea, Chelsea and Covent Garden.
