Traditional Chinese Acupuncture
Acupuncture has been practised in China for some 3,500 years, but the exact date of its origin is unknown. A legend says that this complex healing system developed when it was noticed that soldiers who survived arrow wounds in battle sometimes also recovered from other long standing ailments. In the intervening years it has been thoroughly researched and practised. Indeed, one quarter of the world's population rely on it.

Western medicine views the cause of a specific disease in isolation and controls or destroys it with drugs or surgery. Oriental medicine takes into account the disease symptoms, but also the lifestyle, age, physical and emotional imbalances.
