About Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a system of healing which has been practiced in China and the East for thousands of years.

Acupuncture aims to improve physical and emotional health by re-establishing the balance of vital energy (chi) in the meridians that run in a network around the body. The flow of chi can be affected by such factors as emotional states (stress, grief, anger, sadness and fear) as well as poor nutrition, trauma, the weather, infections and genetic tendencies.

How Does Acupuncture Work?

Acupuncture works to help maintain your body’s equilibrium. It involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body to regulate the flow of chi, your body’s vital energy. For a number of lifestyle and environmental reasons chi can become disturbed, depleted or blocked which can result in symptoms of pain and illness. The insertion of needles is also thought to trigger the release of natural painkilling substances.

In certain instances, traditional acupuncture can be an effective therapy to help restore balance and promote physical and emotional harmony. Treatment is aimed at the root cause of your condition as well as your main symptoms. This approach helps with resolving your problem and enhances your feeling of wellbeing.

Acupuncture can be used effectively alongside conventional medical treatments.

Acupuncture Treatments In Derby and Nottingham

Individual acupuncture treatments are aimed not only at the symptoms, but also at correcting the imbalances that caused them initially. Depending on the condition, your initial visit can last up to an hour and a half. The acupuncture consultation consists of taking a detailed case history, which includes questions about your medical history, digestion, sleep patterns and energy, so that an entire picture of you may be established.

Subsequent acupuncture sessions will usually last around forty-five minutes. Initially you will need treatment on a weekly basis and then less frequently as things improve. Acupuncture treatments may then be continued at intervals throughout the year to maintain optimal health levels. Many people find acupuncture a relaxing and pleasant experience.

Is Acupuncture Safe?

Acupuncture is one of the safest medical treatments, both conventional and complimentary, on offer in the UK. Membership of the British Acupuncture Council requires practitioners to meet their clinical safety, ethical and academic standards. Sterile, single-use needles are used in acupuncture treatments.
