What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a gentle treatment that usually leaves the patients feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and relief from pain.
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese healing method that requires the placement of small needles in specific points, along pathways on the body, in order to promote healing. Acupuncture has been around thousands of years therefore proving itself to be safe and effective.
What can Acupuncture treat?
When asking this question, we tend to be thinking about specific clinical conditions like ‘asthma’ or ‘headaches’. Acupuncture, within the framework of Traditional Oriental Medicine, focuses primarily on the person, and secondarily on the illness. The Acupuncturist usually views your symptoms (the reason you are coming for treatment) as a ‘branch’ expression of an underlying or ‘root’ imbalance. Your practitioner uses the diagnostic principles and systems of Chinese Medicine to evaluate your root imbalance. A treatment program is then tailored to address the two aspects of your circumstance, the root and the branch.
So what about specific conditions?
Because Acupuncture treats the whole person, it can treat almost every condition. Some conditions respond well to acupuncture treatment and some are very difficult to treat. In many cases, acupuncture can bring about a complete cure. In others, it is an effective management strategy.
