Ancient Wisdom For Modern Times

Acupuncture Explained !

Acupuncture is a part of traditional Chinese medicine -and it’s been been around now for thousands of years. So it’s not a new fad or a gimmick, you could say it has stood the test of time

So what is it ?

Well it involves inserting extremely fine sterile needles. Now it’s not like doctors injections at all,its not even an injection it’s an insertion, of a very fine almost hair like needle into the body These acupuncture points are at a pre determined points on the body. It works by stimulating nerve endings, lumphatics and capillaries. It also alleviates blockages and pain thus balancing your whole body’s energy system. 

It’s widely acknowledged as having many therapeutic benifits treating a wide range of conditions not just physical pain but can also balancing  emotional conditions too 

So how does it work?  

How can it get rid of physical pain for example. It works by stimulating the energy/qi in your body. This can be translated like the electricity in your body  

Id like to explain it this way. You know when you bang your elbow on the wall or door or your child bangs their knee what’s the first thing you do. Yes   You rub it why ? Well what your doing instinctively is manually moving or stimulating the energy/qi or electricity to aleviate the pain and it works because the electricity or qi and blood flow , is circulating again. What is happening is that the needles are doing this but at a deeper level in so balancing and circulating your energy or qi levels. If you have emotional dismarmy in your life it works on a emotional level also because it reats the person as a whole. 

I hope that explains and gives you a little more understanding into what acupuncture is. If you have any further queries please get in touch.
