Traditional Chinese acupuncture
is a wonderful, ancient system of medicine that has stood the test
of time. Developed over 2,500 years ago it remains relevant today
and is increasingly recognised as helpful for a wide and diverse
range of conditions. More and more people are discovering it to be a
gentle and effective way of restoring and maintaining health.
Acupuncture is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, a holistic
system of healing that treats you, not just your symptoms. This
means your practitioner is concerned with you as a whole, unique
individual rather than a series of parts (tennis elbow, frozen
shoulder, bad back etc). Within the philosophy of Traditional
Chinese Medicine everything is seen as connected and interdependent.
Often, when people come to the clinic with a diverse range of
symptoms that are all being treated by different doctors and
specialists, acupuncturists are able to see how the symptoms are
connected and make sense as a whole.
Acupuncture aims to bring you back into balance and to strengthen
your constitution. Consequently people having acupuncture often
report feeling better 'in themselves', or more 'like themselves'.
Because everything is seen as connected, healing can occur not just
on the physical level, but on emotional levels too.
A treatment consists of very fine needles used at specific points on
the body to help regulate the flow of energy, or ‘qi’. The needles
are tiny and are nothing like those used for injections. The first
consultation and treatment is conducted in private, but for
follow-ups we treat two people in the same room at the same time in
order to keep treatment costs low. Privacy is ensured with the use
of screens and soft music.
