Acupuncture has an extraordinary ability to transform people's lives by relieving physical, emotional and mental suffering and disharmony. In Chinese medicine, health is seen as a state of harmony and balance. This is a dynamic state which requires us to respond to the demands of our lives with physical and emotional flexibility. A wide range of factors can cause us to lose this ability to move with the flow of life. Our energy then becomes stuck or depleted, and we are more susceptible to ill health.
By inserting fine needles into the channels of energy, an acupuncturist can stimulate the body's own healing response and help restore its natural balance. The principal aim of acupuncture is treating the whole person.
Acupuncture is a safe treatment for all. Some people may have acupuncture as a preventive measure to strengthen their constitution and wellbeing. It can also be used alongside conventional medicine in the treatment of both acute and chronic disease.
What should I expect in a session?
During the first consultation a full medical history with full details of current lifestyle will be taken. There is a physical examination including Chinese and Japanese diagnosis, plus measurements of blood pressure and pulses. Each person requires such detailed examination because they are unique and deserve individual care and attention. Subsequent treatments generally last up to 1 hour. Acupuncture is also very effective in the treatment of children.
What are the benefits?
The benefits of acupuncture frequently include more than just relief from a particular condition. Many people find that it can also lead to increased energy levels, better appetite and sleep as well as an enhanced sense of overall wellbeing.
Acupuncture can provide relief for specific symptoms, and many people are aware that it is effective for the relief of pain.
Acupressure is similar to acupuncture - physical pressyre is applied to trigger points on the body with the aim of clearing blockages. Acupressure may be effective at helping manage nausea, vomiting, or for helping lower back pain.
Chinese Herbal Medicine
Chinese herbs maybe used in conjunction with certain conditions or separately after a diagnosis has been made.
Kathleen also teaches Qigong, an ancient form of healing exercises dating back 1800 years. Kathleen believes prevention is better than cure and that Qigong can improve fitness, health and wellbeing.
