Integrated 5 Element & Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture
A Natural Way to Heal
Acupuncture has been practised in China and the East for thousands of years. The underlying principle of treatment is that illness and pain occur when the body's Qi, or vital energy, cannot flow freely; common reasons for this are physical and emotional stress, infection, injury & poor nutrition. The insertion of ultra fine, sterile needles into specific points on the acupuncture Meridians of the body aims to re-establish the free flow of Qi to restore balance and trigger the body's natural healing response.
Today in the West there is a growing body of evidence based clinical research to support how the body responds to the benefits of Acupuncture. With an estimated 2.5 million acupuncture treatments in the UK each year, the popularity of acupuncture and traditional Chinese adjunct therapies continues to grow as more patients experience the benefits.
Acupuncturists are trained to use subtle diagnostic techniques, developed and refined over centuries. The focus of Acupuncture treatment is on the individual, each patient is unique, with the physical, emotional and mental seen as interdependent. As the condition being treated improves, you may experience other benefits such as an improvement in your general well being, vitality or quality of sleep.
5 Element Constitutional Acupuncture focuses on the individual rather than the illness itself. A combination of genetic inheritance and our first few years of life leave us subtle imbalances in our vital energy or Qi, which affects our health and well being.
Traditional Chinese Medicine, or TCM Acupuncture is based on Yin/Yang and Eight Principle theories and is the mainstream style practised in China. It is well suited to treat a wide range of physical, psychological and musculoskeletal conditions.
The integration of these 2 separate styles of Acupuncture allows the practitioner to understand both the illness and the nature of the person suffering from the illness, therefore creating a wider range of treatment possibilities.
