Benefit of Acupuncture

A Natural Approach

The benefit of acupuncture extends to many conditions, it is a wonderful natural system of medicine that restores and maintainsour health. Acupuncture treatments work to activate a person’s own recuperative and healing powers. Over 2000 years ago Acupuncture was already well established as part of the repertoire of Chinese Medicine.

Traditionally, acupuncture is seen as working with the “Qi” (pronounced “chee”), or vital energy of the body. This energy flows continuously through the meridian system, an energetic network linking specific acupuncture points which in turn influence our health and well-being in all its aspects.
The benefit of Acupuncture includes restoring and maintaining health for all ages

The benefit of Acupuncture covers a huge range of issues such as back ache, muscular injuries and strains, insomnia, migraine, arthritis and IBS to name just a few. Hormonal problems such as PMT, an irregular cycle or menopausal symptoms can be addressed.

Acupuncture can help expectant mums throughout their pregnancies, keeping them strong and working with any issues such as morning sickness. Acupuncture can be used to prepare for and during labour. The therapy can be used for aiding fertility naturally and alongside IVF.

And Acupuncture is brilliant for children of any age too! Do check it out to help with such problems as those persistent colds and infections, infant colic, earache, tummy upsets or eczema.

Not that you have to be ill to have acupuncture…. seasonal preventative treatments are a great way to keep you and your children healthy.

The Ancient Chinese knew that change of season is a great time to pay particular attention to our health. As the energy of the season shifts we need to be ready and able to adjust with ease. Acupuncture can enable us to protect and restore our well­being.

Benefit of Acupuncture – The flow of health

We are healthy when the flow of “Qi” or vitality is clear and strong in our being. Dis-harmony and dis-ease arise when this energy flow is blocked or depleted. Appropriate choice and treatment of acupuncture points along the meridians works to re-establish and maintain the energy flow and restore the natural balance of body and mind.

Acupuncture points can be treated by the shallow insertion of hair fine needles or the use of acupressure. The therapy is suitable for any age from newborn upwards. It is amazingly relaxing as it helps release our blocks and stresses. Acupuncture has a detailed diagnostic system and can also be used preventatively, correcting imbalances in their early stages.
