Allen believes and practices by the traditional eastern philosophy – that your body can self-heal. “Acupuncture developed from a philosophy of holistic balance and harmony.
It sees the human being not as separate from nature, but as an interrelated and integral part of it. Therefore the body, like nature, is healthiest in balance when all systems and organs are functioning harmoniously, with the bodies natural energy flow”.
