Acupuncture and tuina medical massage
Acupuncture is a tried and tested, sophisticated system of medicine. The Chinese and other eastern cultures have been using acupuncture to restore, promote and maintain good health for thousands of years. Nowadays, more and more people are finding that this long-established therapy can offer an effective treatment for a wide range of health conditions.
What can acupuncture do for me?
Acupuncture can be beneficial for a range of illnesses and symptoms, from clearly defined complaints, such as headaches, migraine, back ache, asthma, arthritis, IBS, cystitis and period pain, through to more general feelings of ill health, such as nausea, tiredness, insomnia or low mood.
Conditions commonly treated fall into the following categories of disorder: eye, ear, nose and throat; circulatory; gastrointestinal; gynaecological; genito-urinary; immune; musculo-skeletal; neurological; respiratory; emotional and psychological; addiction.
Acupuncture aims to address the root cause of a condition and not just the symptoms alone. This approach can lead to a more permanent resolution of problems.
What does it feel like?
Acupuncture needles are much finer than needles used for injections and blood tests. When the needle is inserted, the sensation is often described as a tingling or dull ache, which lasts for only a second or two.
How many sessions will I need?
Frequency and length of treatment depends on your individual condition. Most people start coming for acupuncture weekly and, as treatment progresses, the interval between treatments lengthens to fortnightly and then monthly or less frequent if ongoing treatment is required.
Some patients may only need a few treatments while others need treatment over several months or long term. As a general rule, the longer you have had a complaint, the longer it will take to improve
