What is acupuncture good for?
Systematic reviews as sited in the Acupuncture Evidence Project indicate that this therapy has a positive effect on lower back pain, migraine, headache, and knee osteorarthritis. It stimulates the body’s anti-inflammatory cascades, encouraging self-healing. In clinic Tanya aims to identify the root imbalance in the body, then treat locally via tender points (ah-shi points) at the site of your pain. Needle-head moxibustion (heat on the needle) is also commonly used to provide local relief from pain and inflammation.
Scientific trials have also shown this treatment to be helpful in the reduction of stress and anxiety. This ancient medicine is wonderful for calming and rooting the mind, building resources to help encourage the body to function optimally.
Other conditions where this therapy may be of benefit include constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, insomnia, back or pelvic pain during pregnancy, chemotherapy induced nausea and vomiting, neck pain and more. For a full overview of conditions please click here.
How does acupuncture work?
Acupuncture involves the insertion of single use, super-fine sterile needles into the skin. This process is usually painless, and is very relaxing. This medicine aims to address the root of your health issues, as well as any symptoms and signs you are experiencing, to encourage healing on a deeper level and provide significant relief of symptoms. Chinese Medicine has a very obvious physical aspect, however it is also a very energetic medicine, with points located along meridians, that act as ‘portals’ providing access to deeper within the body.
