Today scientists have confirmed that acupuncture really does work.
Acupuncture is written in The Yellow Emperors book in 3,000bc. It can be of immense value in such a variety of symptoms from physical pain to helping relaxation from stress, hormonal rebalancing, to relieving the pain of Bell’s Palsy, trigeminal neuralgia or knee pain, and many medical conditions. In China Acupuncture has been the primary form of healthcare for the last 5,000 years. It is used extensively for a variety of medical purposes ranging from the prevention and treatment of disease, to relieving pain. As in many oriental medicine practices, the emphasis of acupuncture is on prevention where possible.
How does it work?
Imagine a network of railway lines running through the human body with railway stations. When an acupuncture needle is placed in one of these stations a signal travels along the railway line (meridian) to the central station (the brain). In turn the brain is stimulated to produce it’s chemicals (endorphins and others) more efficiently, which then stimulate relevant organs. It is an amazing therapy.
• Acupuncture helps to stimulate the body’s own chemical factory & re-balance the various body systems.
• Acupuncture is of enormous help calming the nervous system thus reducing stress levels.
• Acupuncture is excellent at helping the hormonal system re-balance.
• Acupuncture really helps relieve inflamed, painful joints and overworked muscles.
• Acupuncture is gentle and usually pain free.
NB. With young children and adults who don’t like needles we can stimulate acupuncture points by rubbing them gently and painlessly.
There is virtually no limit to acupuncture’s therapeutic uses; it can be used in virtually every medical complaint, and it’s effects frequently appear to be particularly enhanced when combined with herbal medicine.
