Health, Vitality and Balance
Traditional acupuncture works to help maintain your body's equilibrium. Very fine needles are inserted into specific points on the body to regulate the flow of vital energy (known as Qi in Chinese). Qi can become disturbed, depleted or blocked, leading to pain and illness. Treatment aims to restore balance and promote physical and emotional harmony. Recent research has found that acupuncture points can be seen using CT scans.
Can acupuncture help me?
Please get in touch if you would like to talk about whether acupuncture might be helpful for you right now. 2016 is the year of the Fire Monkey, time to shake things up, create change and follow a new path. Maybe you have a particular health problem or you are struggling with the change of seasons, feeling run down and catching everything going. Acupuncture is a widely used form of health care in many countries across the world, listed by the World Health Organisation as helpful for many conditions. Some examples are infertility, pain, injuries, fatigue, skin problems, anxiety, depression, insomnia, asthma, urinary difficulties, frequent colds and flu. In the UK, acupuncture is available within the NHS for low back pain, and many doctors and physiotherapists and even some vets use acupuncture to relieve pain.
Fertility Support and other special interests
My special interests are infertility, emotional well-being and skin problems, but traditional acupuncture always takes the whole person into account and I am very happy to talk to you about any aspect of your health. If you would like support for infertility or are contemplating IVF at some point in the future do get in touch, as taking plenty of time to prepare can make all the difference. You can find a summary of research into acupuncture and IVF here.
