Acupuncture

 

p15Medical acupuncture is an effective, safe, tried and tested acupuncture treatment, and is a modified form of the traditional Chinese art, but is not dependent on the Chinese methods of diagnosis.

Does it work? - That's the first question typically encountered when introducing a patient to an acupuncturist. In some cultures, acupuncture is the primary health care system. It is more of a last resort in the United States, and is now being used in some departments in the NHS. More and more people are looking to alternative and complementary methods to gain relief from physical, mental and emotional complaints.

 

Some patients are afraid of needles, but that doesn't mean they can't have acupuncture - Now, this is a fair statement. If acupuncture included needles the size you find in hospitals, you wouldn't want to receive treatment either. The truth is acupuncture needles (sterile, single-use and disposable) are about the width of a hair. They are inserted between the cells only of the skin, no further. Made of a thin, flexible stainless steel, the tip is shaped to increase the client's comfort during treatment and some are coated with silicone to ease insertion even more.
Does acupuncture work even though the client doesn't believe in it? - Yes! Animals don't believe in acupuncture and receive great benefits - patients in comas too. Even court-ordered addicts get clean with acupuncture, despite a sceptical attitude. What really matters are the results you experience and observe in your body. That's true proof. Do you have to believe? No. You just need to be willing to give it a try.

 

Does it hurt? - The answer is yes and no. The sensation of a needle going into the skin may feel like a small pinch. Sometimes there is a sensation of tingling, warmth, coolness or heaviness both at the site of insertion as well as radiating out from the point. Many styles of traditional acupuncture consider this sensation a prerequisite to effective treatment, although not everyone senses this feeling on every point.

 

What sort of conditions does acupuncture treat?- Acupuncture is an excellent way of addressing pain, and is the primary reason people here seek out this particular treatment. However, acupuncture deals with symptoms (in addition to pain) related to the immune system, women 's health issues, mental health concerns, digestive disturbances, anxiety, insomnia, migraines and so on. Many symptoms may be common, but that doesn't mean they are normal. Premenstrual agitation, not being able to fall or stay asleep, or frequent headaches for example, are conditions with which we learn to live, but we really don't have to.

 

Acupuncture can relieve many conditions for which conventional medicine is relatively ineffective. Many often people find treatment can reduce the amount of medication, improve immunity, reduce pain, and gain greater ease in their bodies. Acupuncture can augment and assist with most, if not all, treatment modalities. In fact more and more scientific and clinical studies prove the benefits of acupuncture.

 

The following is a list of conditions commonly treated with acupuncture, which is by no means comprehensive:

 

  • Nervous Tension
  • Asthma and Bronchitis
  • Bell's Palsy and Trigeminal Neuralgia
  • Cerebrovascular Accident (Stroke)
  • Colitis, Constipation and Diarrhoea
