Acupuncture

Acupuncture can be used to treat many conditions including pain(local & general), physical and emotional issues such as anxiety and stress. Also Skeletal & Hormonal conditions. (W.H.O. list below)

Regular Acupuncture is also good for maintaining the mind body and spirit balance.

N.I.C.E is now recommending Acupuncture instead of medications such as opiods. 

 

 

 

Acupuncture uses very small needles inserted to specific areas of the body, to stimulate, regulate and direct the body’s own energy flow to harmonise and heal. A course of treatments is usually required for full recovery.

Creating balance is the fundamental principle and aim of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Styles of Acupuncture

We offer various styles of acupuncture;

  • Auricular acupuncture uses points within the ear lobe to treat the whole body. Research shows it is particularly beneficial in the treatment of  depression/stress/anxiety, addicition therapy and weight control.
  • Battlefield or ‘The Nada Protocol’ is a style of auricular treatment developed quite literally on the battlefield to help reduce certain types of pain and can give swift results
  • The Balance technique allows for needles to be inserted away from the problem area, whilst balancing the body as a whole.
  • Traditional Chinese Medicinal Acupuncture, uses systems developed over thousands of years of practice and can be used to treat most modern health complaints. The World Health Organisation has published a list of diseases and conditions it believes can be treated effectively by Acupuncture based on current research.

 

The History of Acupuncture

Acupuncture can be traced back to ancient China, when the needles were little more than sharpened  stones, arrow heads  or slithers of wood.  Now after thousands of years of refinement, we can draw on the knowledge and skills that have treated countless people. Modern needles are sterile single use needles of tiny sizes,

Acupuncture, like exercise, is not a one stop solution, it often takes a numer of sessions to treat an issue.

Acupuncture also aids the body’s good health when used as a maintenance  system.It help keep the body in balance, which helps to prevent illnesses taking hold of the body in future.
