What can Acupuncture do for me?

Acupuncture is a complementary and alternative approach to the management of dis-eases to help with the maintenance of general health.

All ‘medical’ signs and symptoms are an external manifestation of an imbalance of the Qi, so restoration of, or even prevention of any imbalance may avoid physical and emotional problems. Classical Acupuncturists believe that the potential for this or any imbalance is all around us:

  • Emotions
  • Our general wellbeing
  • Everyday stresses
  • The general environment of work and life
  • Climatic conditions
- so even general life is a good reason to have Acupuncture!

Acupuncture may act as a preventative treatment in order to avoid future problems through the changing seasons, cycles and phases of our lives; for a better sense of well-being and ability to cope with the dynamics of life, or to help you maintain a level of health.

Electro Acupuncture (EA)

I practise Electro Acupuncture (EA), which can be used in conjunction with traditional, constitutional treatments or as a ‘stand alone’ treatment. Because it allows stronger and more continuous stimulation it can in some situations be more effective than traditional needling; the results may be more rapid and longer lasting.

Kinesiology Acu Taping

As an adjunct to acupuncture, I use this technique to promote the body’s natural healing processes. It provides support, stability and mobility to soft tissues and joints in musculoskeletal (MSK) problems, for example, RSI, pain, degenerative changes, sports injuries, orthopaedics, arthritis etc

In clinical practise, the placement, stretch and direction of the applied tape combine my knowledge of MSK, Chinese medicine meridian theory and 5 Element acupuncture. It can therefore be used curatively and preventatively together with classical acupuncture, to stabilise an area and increase the flow of Qi, so reducing pain and inflammation and to maintain and improve mobility, and promote healing.

The tape is latex free, waterproof, 72% cotton; it can be worn for up to 7 days, and is safe for all populations, ages and levels of fitness.
