What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is based on the theory that our emotional and physical well-being is dependent upon the free flow of energy, known as Qi, flowing through our body along a network of pathways,called Meridians. When the flow of Qi becomes blocked or unbalanced it can lead to ill- health.
Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points along these meridians to remove any blockages and to restore the balance of energy. The action of needling stimulates the body to rebalance itself, activating our own recuperative and self healing powers.
Treatment focuses on the patient rather than the illness and works towards a restoration of health and well-being. You will be asked about your current symptoms and medical history. Each treatment involves the insertion of fine needles into carefully selected points so as to rectify the imbalances diagnosed. Treatments last 45 minutes to one hour.
Initially treatments are weekly and then spread out when the symptoms have improved. Generally the number of sessions required depends upon how long you have had the complaint. Most clients commit to 5-6 weekly treatments so that the balance of energy and health can be restored.
Cosmetic acupuncture is used to slow down the ageing process and to prevent the onset of wrinkles and fine lines. A number of hair-thin sterile acupuncture needles are placed at strategic points on the face, aiding the circulation of blood and lymph which will help to strengthen the structure of the skin and improve the complexion.
Points on the body are also needled to help balance the body systems and improve the flow of energy, blood and fluids.
Each individual will respond differently to the treatment depending on age and lifestyle. For the best results a course of 6-10 treatments is recommended. A number of clients treat themselves to one session of cosmetic acupuncture as a facial treatment.
