What can acupuncture do for you?
People come to acupuncture for a variety of reasons. Sometimes it is to relieve aches and pains, whilst others simply have acupuncture to improve their general sense of wellbeing, or use it as a preventative measure to maintain good health.
Some people are drawn to acupuncture because they do not feel “quite right” within themselves, and other treatment options they have investigated have not proved suitable.
In my clinic, I have treated a variety of conditions including lower back pain; neck pain; sciatica; tennis elbow; frozen shoulder; osteoporosis; Morton’s neuroma; headaches & migraines; sleep disorders; nausea; vertigo; fibromyalgia; neuropathy; hot flushes; stress; asthma; common colds & coughs; fertility; PCOS; endometriosis and menstruation issues.
If you would like to find out whether it can help you, please call, text or e-mail me, and I will be happy to answer any questions.
Who has acupuncture?
Acupuncture is considered suitable for all ages, including babies and children, the elderly and the chronically ill. It is safe and effective to use alongside conventional medicine.
How does acupuncture work?
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese holistic therapy that treats your body and mind as an integrated whole. It works in helping maintain your body’s equilibrium that can get knocked out of balance due to lifestyle and environmental reasons. Your ‘qi’, your body’s vital energy, can become disturbed, depleted or blocked and this can result in some symptoms of pain and illness.
By inserting very fine needles into specific acupuncture points on your body, it helps to regulate the flow of ‘qi’. In certain instances, this can help restore balance and promote physical and emotional harmony. The true strength and beauty of Chinese medicine lies in its ability to find the root cause within a range of complex patterns to help the best treatment for you.
Treatments are uniquely designed with you in mind, taking all aspects of your life into consideration: your diet, your work, your sleep patterns, your hobbies, your relationships, your medical history, even your favourite season!
