ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture is a system of healing which has been practised in China and other Eastern countries for thousands of years. Although often described as a means of pain relief, it is in fact used to treat people with a wide range of illnesses it’s focus is on improving the overall well-being of the patient, rather than the isolated treatment of specific symptoms. According to traditional Chinese philosophy our health is dependent on the body’s motivating energy-known as Qi-moving in a smooth and balanced way through a series of meridians (channels) beneath the skin. Qi consists of equal and opposite qualities-Yin and Yang-and when these become unbalanced, illness may result. By inserting fine needles into the channels of energy an Acupuncturist can stimulate the body’s own healing response and help restore it’s natural balance. The flow of Qi can be disturbed by a number of factors: emotional states, such as anxiety, fear, stress, anger or grief, poor nutrition, hereditary factors, infections, poisons and trauma. The principle aim of Acupuncture in treating the whole person is to recover the equilibrium between the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of the individual.


What does it feel like?
Most people’s experience of needles is of those used in injections and blood tests. Acupuncture needles bear little resemblance to these. They are much finer and are solid rather than hollow. When the needle is inserted, the sensation is often described as a tingling or dull ache.

Needles are inserted either for a second or two, or left in place for up to 20 minutes, depending on the effect required. During treatment, patients commonly experience a heaviness in the limbs or a pleasant feeling of relaxation.

The benefits of Acupuncture frequently include more than just relief from a particular condition. Many people find it can also led to increased energy levels, better sleep as well as an enhanced sense of overall well-being.

Your first consultation may be longer than subsequent sessions. The Acupuncturist needs to assess your general state of health, in order to identify the underlying pattern of disharmony and give you a more effective treatment.
