Acupuncture- Activiating Self-Healing
Acupuncture includes a range of procedures that involve the stimulation of points on the body using a variety of techniques.
The aim of doing this is to activate the self-healing ability of the body by improving the flow of energy and nutrients, which then promotes recovery from injury, restores balance in the body and maintains well- being.How Acupuncture Improves Your Well-beingCall Now- 09-929 3631 or Book a Consultation
Acupuncture can assist with fertility, pregnancy and childbirth, addressing various health conditions by restoring the flow of Qi through the meridians. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theory, blockage of Energy can, over time, accumulate as a mass. For example, since the Liver meridian runs through the pelvis and has a link to the breast, in women this can manifest in the development of ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids and endometriosis to name a few conditions. Acupuncture is an excellent tool for addressing constrained Liver qi.
Acupuncture is also a remedy for a host of chronic pain problems, from headaches, to back pain and arthritis. This is built on the concept of maintaining the balance of the various body elements – including blood and nutrients along with less measurable ones like the energy force known as qi. Inserting needles at designated points on the body intercepts or unblocks the flow of such elements, and lies at the heart of this centuries-old medicine.
These theories are sometimes completely foreign, even “weird”, to western medicine, which has a hard time accepting unquantifiable entities such as qi. That is why western researchers have struggled not only to document objective evidence of acupuncture’s effectiveness, but also to provide some hints about how it may work.
