Acupuncture is a part of Chinese Medicine. It uses very fine disposable needles to stimulate the body‘s own physiological and emotional health.
It is mainly known for pain relief, but many other conditions can be helped. Chinese Medicine views the body as its own eco system, constantly functioning, producing, clearing and fixing itself. With disturbances through lifestyle, injuries or constitutional factors, balance is upset and illness follows. Acupuncture aims to restore the body’s own capacities to heal itself.
This may be done with acupuncture needles, acupressure, or ear acupuncture. Each person is an individual and the diagnosis is made up from the presenting symptoms, e.g. headaches can be very different in location on the head, time and triggers. Acupuncture has become an acceptable and popular medicine in the West and many find relief by trying this effective and relaxing treatment.
At In-Health Family Chiropractic we have been effectively utilising acupuncture since 2005.
