David Gaunt - Master of Acupuncture
David Gaunt What is Acupuncture and how does it work?

Acupuncture is an ancient system of medicine several thousand years old originating
from China.

It is a way of restoring balance and harmony to the body and mind. The acupuncturist sees
ill-health in terms of imbalance and disharmony which manifests as blocks in "qi" (energy).
The energy flows in 12 pathways in through the body – these are called meridians.
The task of the acupuncture practitioner is to find the underlying cause of the health problem.
Acupuncture points are located upon the meridians and fine needles are inserted into points
to revitalise the flow of energy in order to restore balance and harmony in body and mind.
Sometimes points are gently warmed using a herb called moxa – this is called moxabustion.
The aim of Traditional Acupuncture is to find the cause and to treat the whole person.
