What is Acupuncture
Acupuncture is the practice of using very fine needles, usually no thicker than a human hair, to stimulate the energy pathways in the body through which the Qi (chee) flows.
This is based on over 3,000 years of practice during which time Chinese medicine has been using this methodology to work with people who suffer from a range of ailments.
Unlike Western medicine where typically pharmaceuticals are used to treat the ailment, Acupuncture looks to harness the power within the human body to rebalance the Qi using a variety of established points.
These points are where the Qi can be affected by the insertion of a very fine needle and to stimulate acu-points along the channels, or as they are sometimes known, the meridians.
The channels or meridians which are recognised in Chinese medicine are the Lung Channel, Large Intestine Channel, Stomach Channel, Spleen Channel, Heart Channel, Small Intestine Channel, Bladder Channel, Kidney Channel, Pericardium Channel, Sanjiao Channel, Gallbladder Channel, Liver Channel, Du Channel and the Ren Channel.
Acupuncture is currently recognised by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) as being suitable for a number of conditions such as headaches and migraines.
Typically, Acupuncture does not look to replace Western medical advice but to work with it to help individuals reach a beneficial outcome.
Acupuncture aims to remove blockages in the flow of qi by diffusing lactic acid and carbon monoxide that accumulate in muscle tissue and can cause stiffness. It can also create abnormal pressure on nerves, lymph nodes and the blood vessels which often manifest in adversely affecting the function of the skeletal system and internal organs.
Why use Acupuncture?
People use Acupuncture for a great many reasons although quite often the first experience of Acupuncture comes about after seeking professional medical help and finding that it does not immediately solve their condition.
When individuals are desperate to get some relief, particularly from pain, they will seek out alternatives to their existing regime to try and make a difference.
We have found though that once people have experienced their first few sessions of Acupuncture it becomes something which they can use to maintain a healthy lifestyle rather than just for relief when pain strikes.
At Acupuncture That Works we categorise our Acupuncture into four key areas:
- To help relieve the symptoms of sickness including nausea, vomiting and irritable bowel syndrome.
- As an aid for pain relief, particularly back pain, dental pain and muscular pain including sports injuries
- To help with addiction, detoxification, fertility and revitalisation including Facial Acupuncture
- As an aid towards balanced living including stress problems, insomnia and weight control.
