Craig Minto Acupuncture

Oriental acupuncture is a deceptively simple form of medical treatment (Chinese Medicine) involving the insertion of extremely fine needles into carefully located parts of the body. However, behind this apparently straightforward act sits a huge body of knowledge and philosophy, tried and tested over thousands of years and on millions of people. If one word had to be chosen to represent Chinese Medicine's view on health it would be 'balance'. Enough rest, enough play, enough work, enough love and enough laughter, at the right time and in the right amount. This is our challenge, as any excess or deficiency leads to imbalance and eventually dis-ease. Human beings are hugely complex both physically and psychologically. The holistc framework of Chinese Medicine allows the practitioner insight into the heart of the patient's life and condition, taking into account all of the contributory factors that can result in illness.
