The philosophy behind acupuncture emphasises the need for balance in life and has been around for over 3000 years, its practice in the UK has steadily increased in recent decades.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), of which acupuncture is a part, well-being derives from the balance of two opposing life forces, YIN and YANG. These are inextricably linked and depend on each other in the same way as the mind and the body depend on each other for physical and emotional harmony.
Through the application of fine sterile needles to acupoints along twelve meridians (channels), balance and energy flow are redressed. This can help in the treatment of pain, muscular tension, emotional tension, and inflammation.
To help ourselves the philosophy behind acupuncture also suggests that we pay attention to diet, exercise, work/life balance, lifestyle choices and stress levels.
If the last year has thrown you out of balance, acupuncture can help relieve Chronic Pain, Anxiety and Stress, Headaches and Migraine, Menstrual and Fertility problems, and Menopausal issues.
As a practitioner, I have learnt that it is important to treat everyone as an individual. I aim to restore well-being and balance to all I treat.
