Acupuncture, Crawley, West Sussex
Acupuncture is a system of healthcare originating in China and other Far eastern cultures, where it remains a key component in standalone healthcare worldwide, and more and more people in the UK are discovering how acupuncture can benefit them.
How does Acupuncture work?
Acupuncture works to help maintain the body’s natural balance. The insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body help regulate the flow of energy(qi). This energy can sometimes become disturbed or depleted resulting in symptoms of pain or illness.
Acupuncture aims to restore , balance and promote harmony, both physical and emotional. Treatment is aimed at addressing the cause of the condition holistically in addition to treating the symptoms. Patients may notice other complaints and problems are resolved as the treatment progresses.
What are the Benefits of Acupuncture?
A growing body of evidence-based clinical research is discovering how the body responds to acupuncture and its benefits for a wide range of common health conditions. A lot of people have acupuncture to relieve specific aches and pains, such as osteoarthritis of the knee, TMJ, headaches and low back pain, or for common health problems like an overactive bladder. Other people choose acupuncture when they can feel their bodily functions are out of balance, but they have no obvious diagnosis. And many have regular treatments because they find it so beneficial and relaxing.
How can Acupuncture help me?
People turn to acupuncture for help with specific conditions, as well as for help maintaining general good health. Others look to acupuncture to improve their sense of well-being. Because acupuncture aims to treat the whole person rather than isolated symptoms, it can be effective for a range of conditions. Many people return to acupuncture again and again, finding it both beneficial and relaxing.
People seek treatment for conditions such as:
- Muscular-skeletal pain
- conditions such as back/neck/shoulder pain, Sciatica, etc.
- migraines and headaches
- menstrual problems
- digestive issues, such as IBS
- anxiety and depression.
Does Acupuncture hurt?
Acupuncture needles are so fine that most people don’t feel them being inserted. It is normal to feel a mild tingle or dull ache as the acupuncturist adjusts the needle to direct Qi. While the needles are in place most people feel deeply relaxed which can continue after they are removed.
What is Moxa?
Moxa is often used in conjunction with acupuncture to enhance the effect of the treatment. The dried herb, Moxa, is used like incense to gently and safely warm the body, relax muscles and supplement qi.
