About Acupuncture


Acupuncture for good health

Are you are experiencing niggling health problems that leave you feeling drained and unable to function at your best? Do poor sleep patterns and low energy levels mean that you are just ‘getting by rather than having the energy to enjoy life?

Are you finding that conventional medical treatment is getting you nowhere and your symptoms aren’t improving?

Maybe you just feel ‘out of balance’ and not your normal self?

Then acupuncture is for you!

The aim of acupuncture is not only to restore balance to the body, addressing the main issues that you have but also to that it will also help you feel more energised less stressed.

What is a Chinese medicine diagnosis?

Acupuncture evolved in China several thousand years ago and was the main treatment for many illnesses and health related conditions. Chinese hospitals even use acupuncture today alongside conventional medicine.

Chinese medicine has a very different way of looking at health, disease and illness. The idea is that a person’s body should to be in balance, with ‘Qi’ or ‘energy’ of good quality flowing smoothly around the body. If this is the case then that person will have good health and good energy levels. Should the flow of Qi in the body become disrupted or out of balance, then an illness or disease will start to occur.

In a treatment I first carry out an  initial diagnosis. To achieve this I’ll ask lots of details health questions and use Chinese pulse and tongue diagnosis techniques.  Then I can determine the best treatment plan for you, selecting the appropriate  acupuncture points and needling techniques that are needed to regulate the Qi and bring it back into balance.  The aim is that when the body’s balance has been corrected the body can start to heal itself and good health will be restored.

An imbalance in the body and poor quality qi can affect your health in many ways. It can lead to mild symptoms such as irritability and low energy levels to more serious health related conditions. Restoring the balance of Qi can achieve such diverse things as helping to clear foggy thinking to improving your ‘get up and go’.

The emphasis in treatment is to restore balance. So acupuncture has the ability to treat your original complaint and also help you feel better generally.

It is a treatment that is suitable to use alongside many conventional medical treatments.
