What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a system of healing and treatment which has been practiced in China and other Eastern countries for thousands of years. Often used for pain relief it is also used to treat a wide range of illness. A holistic therapy, the principle aim of acupuncture in treating the whole person is to recover the balance between the physical, emotional and spiritual aspect of the individual. According to traditional Chinese philosophy our health is dependent on the body’s free flow of vital energy, known as QI. When this flow becomes blocked or unbalanced, illness can result. The insertion of tiny needles at various points on the body helps to stimulate the body’s own healing response and restore the natural balance. Only the finest Serin needles from Japan are used ensuring treatment is as gentle as possible.
Is Acupuncture for you?
Acupuncture may help some conditions e.g. skin complaints, migraine, IBS, TMJ problems, back and rheumatic pain. These are just a few of the complaints acupuncture may alleviate, so please feel free to phone to discuss whether acupuncture can help your condition. Acupuncture may also help when you have no specific medical diagnosis but feel generally unwell or low in energy. Many people continue treatment as a preventative measure or to maintain good health.
What happens during the consultation?
The consultation involves discussing your presenting condition together with your past medical history. A tongue and pulse diagnosis is also made, helping the acupuncturist decide how best to help your body back on the path to well being. Acupuncture points may be selected on arms, feet, legs, and abdomen or back therefore some clothing may have to be removed; it is a good idea to wear loose fitting clothing. Length and frequency of treatment depends on the condition, but most people feel a benefit after 5 or 6 sessions.
