Wanaka Acupuncture Clinic

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture involves the stimulation of specific points on the skin, usually by the insertion of needles. In its original form acupuncture was based on the principles of traditional Chinese medicine.


Traditional acupuncturists understand health in terms of a vital force or energy called “Qi” (pronounced “chee”) which circulates between the organs along channels called meridians. Qi energy must flow in the correct strength and quality through each of these meridians and organs for health to be maintained.


The acupuncture points are located along the meridians and provide one means of altering the flow of Qi. Acupuncture treatments also include at times the use of moxibustion and cupping.
