How does acupuncture help?
Acupuncture is an extremely safe, gentle and effective treatment option. Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years for pain and is an excellent drug and side-effect free treatment.
Using acupuncture points can stimulate the nervous system to release chemical and hormones in the muscles, spinal cord and brain. Acupuncture can change the experience of pain and trigger a natural healing response in the body’s tissues. Acupuncture can also have a calming effect, altering our state of mind to reduce stress and anxiety.
The overall effect of acupuncture, whether viewed from a Chinese medicine or Western medical perspective, is a positive one. Without inflicting any harm to you acupuncture can effectively treat many physical and emotional disorders and get you back on your feet.
An acupuncture treatment consists of a consultation and treatment, along with dietary and lifestyle advice. The practitioner will often observe your wrist pulse, tongue and ask you several questions about your current and past state of health. This process is used to obtain a whole picture of your health in order to individualise a treatment to your specific needs.
The treatment itself may involve the insertion of several fine sterile and disposable needles, which act to stimulate the body’s own natural healing mechanisms. During a treatment you will rest on a massage table in a warm, comfortable room with soothing music. You will often feel very relaxed after a session.
It is best to drink plenty of water and to not undergo intense physical or mental activity for a few hours after your session to let the internal healing continue after you leave the clinic.
Why choose acupuncture?
- Acupuncture is harmless and effective
- Treats not only your symptoms but also the root cause
- Promotes healing within your body without suppressing immunity
- May be used by people of all ages
- Does not result in ill side effects compared to some Western medications
- Sessions are relaxing and rejuvenating and can leave you feeling calm and happy
Acupuncture does not replace all medical treatments available, and your doctor should be consulted before you discontinue any other forms of treatment. Acupuncture will often complement Western medical treatments through encouraging healing and recovery.
Is treatment painful?
No, acupuncture in fact is very gentle and relaxing. When you receive a treatment you will lie under warm fluffy towels, taking some time to escape and unwind. You will barely feel the points used as they are placed with expert precision and care. After your treatment you will feel light, relaxed and rejuvenated, with a significant minimisation of pain.
