Lifestyle and environmental reasons can disturb, deplete or block this energy resulting in symptoms of pain and illness. Acupuncture works by inserting very fine needles into specific points on thebody to regulate the flow of this vital energy, helping return the body to its natural equilibrium. Some people turn to acupuncture for help with a specific symptom or condition.
If you are answering yes to any for these questions then acupuncture may be the answer you have been searching for. Traditional Acupuncture is a healthcare system based on principles dating back over2000 years. It is a model of good health and function and it looks at pain and illness as signs that the body is out of balance. The aim of acupuncture is to bring back balance to regain your body's equilibrium.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a holistic healthcare system that developed in China over thousands of years. It looks at the interaction between mind, body and environment, and aims to preventand cure illness and disease. No synthetic drugs are used, and the treatment methods are natural. People of any age and constitution can benefit from TCM. There are three common methods of restoring the body to health: herbal medicine, acupuncture and Chinese massage.
I am a fully qualified Traditional Acupuncturist, and trained at the Northern College of Acupuncture in York. I provide a range of therapies including Acupuncture and Tuina (Chinese therapeuticmassage). I also teach Tai Chi and Qigong (Chinese exercise to promote health and wellbeing).
Acupuncture, unlike Western Medicine, approaches healing by encouraging the body to heal itself. The whole body is treated not just the symptom of the condition. The body is encouraged to re-balanceand self-heal by altering energy flow in this safe, reliable system of medicine that has been practiced for thousands of years.
I offer a friendly and professional service, along with a thorough and detailed understanding of most conditions, from both a Western and Chinese Medicine perspective. Your treatment is individuallytailored, not only to alleviate your symptoms, but also to address the root cause, for a more effective result. I will support you throughout your journey back to better health, strengthen your reserves and improve your well-being.
