Description

The principle aim of acupuncture in treating the whole person is to recover the balance between the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of the individual. Acupuncture is a system of healing which has been practised in China and the for thousands of years. Although often prescribed as a means of pain relief, it is in fact used to treat a wide range of illnesses. According to traditional Chinese philosophy our health is dependent on the body’s motivating energy – known as Qi (pronounced ‘chee’) – flowing through a series of meridians (channels) throughout the body. The flow of Qi can become disturbed by a number of factors, including emotional states, such as anxiety, stress, anger, poor nutrition, hereditary factors, environment, trauma and work. If the body’s energy becomes too imbalanced illness may result.
The insertion of fine needles into the channels of energy, stimulates the body’s own healing response and help restore its natural balance. Moxibustion? Moxibustion is a heat treatment which can be used independent or alongside acupuncture according to individual need. It is made from the herb Mugwort into Moxa and is a common Chinese and Japanese therapy. I personally use smokeless moxa which I apply to the end of the needles so that the heat conducts down the shaft and into the point. Alternatively I use indirect moxibustion.
in which one end of a moxa stick is lit and held and inch or two away from the skin usually around the ninseted needles to bring mild warmth and a pleasant sensation. Many people describe the sensation as a ray of sunshine on the treated area and find it to be a particularly relaxing and comforting experience. What is Acupressure Massage? This is frequently used in advance of an acupuncture treatment or as a ‘needle free’ alternative. The massage follows the meridian lines, gently removing knots of stagnation in muscle groups, thus stimulating the flow of Qi and Blood to the treated site.
