 Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and has been used to diagnose and treat problems for over 2,500 years. Currently, TCM is used alongside Western medicine in the hospitals of China and is becoming more popular in the U.K. 

Recent developments include the endorcement of Acupuncture for the treatment of back pain by NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence).

Following a consultation, a set of acupuncture points, will be selected. Ultra-fine needles, not at all like needles used for blood tests or injections will be inserted into these areas to influence the energy within the body, re-establishing equilibrium and addressing the complaint. Most people find they'll feel a sense of deep relaxation, with no discomfort. Many people do not feel the needles being inserted, but may experience a dull ache or tingling which soon abates.

Cupping and Moxibustion

Dependent on your diagnosis, you may be offered further treatment in the form of Cupping or Moxibustion. 

* Cupping is a technique where a vacuum is created in a special glass cup, which is then placed over the skin. 
   This encourages blood flow to that area and is especially useful for pain relief. 

* Moxibustion is a process where a dried herb is burned over specific points to stimulate energy. 

Dietary and Lifestyle Advise

Food is medicine according to Traditional Chinese Medical Theory and some treatments might include looking at your diet and how changes can be made to increase your energy, promoting greater health. Likewise, there may be some suggested changes in lifestyle too.
