Acupuncture At The Westlake Clinic

Acupuncture is an ancient system of healing developed over thousands of years as part of the traditional medicine of China. The intent of acupuncture therapy is to promote health and alleviate pain and suffering.  The aim of the treatment is to restore the balance of the universal energy Qi (pronounced chee) in the body, through the painless application of fine needles into strategic points on the body. The method by which this is accomplished, has been tested over thousands of years and continues to be validated today.

The perspective from which an acupuncturist views health and sickness hinges on concepts of energy, energetic balance and imbalance. Just as the Western medical doctor monitors the blood flowing through blood vessels and the messages traveling via the nervous system, the acupuncturist assesses the flow and distribution of this vital energy within its pathways, known as meridians and channels.

Illness is an imbalance or blockage of Qi , the natural energy of the universe which flows freely through a healthy body. Qi flows through 14 channels in the human body, known as meridians, which branch to bodily organs and functions. Disease or illness is the result of a blockage or obstruction in one or more of these meridians.

Qi consists of opposing forces known as Yin and Yang. Yin and yang need to be in the right balance so that harmony is achieved. It is re-balancing the yin and yang in the body to achieve harmony that is the basis of healing.

The body's meridians are influenced by special points on the body: the acupuncture points. By stimulating the acupuncture points, which are thought to be 'holes' that give access to the meridians, the body's Qi can be adjusted, balanced, and harmonised.

Acupuncture is increasingly becoming a popular alternative treatment choice for a wide range of conditions, as it is pain free and drug free.  The NHS has recognised that acupuncture is a very safe treatment with few side-effects.  It is also being recommended by NICE (National Institute for Clinical Excellence) as a treatment for lower back pain.

Conditions that are commonly treated with acupuncture include headache and migraine, musculo-skeletal pain (including sports injuries and sciatica), infertility and IVF, digestive disorders, menstrual pain and irregularity, allergies including hayfever, sinusitis, stress, depression, anxiety, low immunity and fatigue.

Acupuncture is a drug-free and pain free way to improve your health and your general well being.  Most clients say the treatment is relaxing and see a general improvement in well-being such as digestion, sleep patterns, stress and energy levels as a result of treatment.
