Injury, stress, diet and lifestyle disrupt the natural harmony of our body which can lead to physical and/or emotional symptoms.
An acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of very fine, single-use sterile needles to activate acupuncture points on the body to restore the body to its natural state of equilibrium.
Treatments are tailored uniquely to the individual with the focus being on them, rather than their illness or disease. Acupuncture treats the underlying condition of the body as well as the main symptoms of your complaint. This not only improves your complaint, but also helps with other symptoms that may be bothering you - often improving an overall sense of wellbeing.
FACIAL ACUPUNCTURE & FACIAL MASSAGE
Facial acupuncture is a natural, non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment involving the insertion of tiny acupuncture needles to various points on the face. Treatments are tailored to each individual face and are followed by a relaxing facial massage. Facial acupuncture stimulates collagen production, increases blood circulation, improves cell regeneration, tones and lifts the facial muscles, improves lymphatic drainage, and regulates hormones.
Often described as a 'reverse massage', Cupping is a technique used to stimulate larger areas of the body. It helps to ease pain and inflammation by helping the blood and qi to flow more easily in areas of stagnation, and aids detoxification. A vacuum is created inside the glass cup using a flame, and then quickly placed onto the skin where treatment is needed. Several cups can be used and they may be left in place from a few minutes up to 20 minutes. Slide cupping is another method and involves using massage oil and moving the cups over the affected areas of the body. Cupping isn't painful and can be described as the feeling of having a deep massage. It can leave reddish/purple circles on the body which may last for a couple of days, however no trauma has been inflicted on the muscles.
Electro-acupuncture is similar to traditional acupuncture, however the needles are attached to a device which generates a gentle electrical pulse to increase stimulation. It is safe and particularly effective when treating muscular conditions or chronic pain.
To find out what to expect during an acupuncture treatment
I'm a fully qualified, licensed acupuncture practitioner and a member of the British Acupuncture Council. I completed my 4 years of training at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in Acupuncture and Naturopathy. Prior to becoming an acupuncturist, I worked as a professional dancer in the commercial tv and theatre industry for nearly 10 years. I was first introduced to acupuncture after a bad neck injury early on into my dance career, and was amazed at how much these tiny needles helped with my pain and recovery. I discovered how much it supported and benefitted other issues that I was suffering from, such as stress and anxiety, insomnia, digestive issues, and hormonal and menstrual cycle irregularities, due to the holistic approach of this form of treatment. This inspired my decision to retrain and study this fascinating subject.
