How Acupuncture Can Help You
Used for thousand of years, acupuncture offers a well-established approach to treating issues affecting our physical health and mental wellbeing.
It is based on the principle that health and wellbeing can be achieved by tapping into our natural healing mechanisms, rather than suppressing a condition or symptom. Harnessing this natural in-built intelligence allows both body and mind to normalise functionsacross body systems, including cardiovascular, digestive, endocrine, immune, integumentary, lymphatic, muscular, nervous, reproductive, respiratory, skeletal and urinary. Acupuncture also draws on the idea that physical health and emotional wellbeing are closely connected, therefore providing a truly holistic treatment, as explained in our media contributions on health & wellbeing.
Acupuncture can be used as a way to treat specific facial skin problems too, such as poor skin tone, fine lines, wrinkles, small scars, acne, pigmentation, under-eye puffiness and dark circles, blocked pores, excessive redness or sweating. What is unique about this type of acupuncture, is that it takes an integrated view of your skin issues, and the treatment and choice of acupoints will address any underlying factors that may be affecting your skin, such as stress, water retention, or poor sleep. The result is total wellness with radiant, fresh, clear and firm looking skin, all without using any harsh chemicals, toxins or surgical intervention.
Acupuncture can help with many, even rare and poorly understood health conditions, so please do get in touch to discuss your particular situation.
What Does an Acupuncture Session Involve?
Your first session is an extended appointment which takes around 1.5 hrs. This includes a full consultation to discuss your main concern, day-to-day health and medical history; a Chinese Medicine diagnosis, using techniques such as pulse taking and tongue diagnosis; and a first treatment.
During the treatment, ultra-fine single use pre-sterilised needles are inserted into specific points on the surface of the skin, known as acupoints. The acupoints are located on channels that run along the face and body, and are used to access an energetic flow, known as Qi and to also encourage circulation and blood flow, in order to regulate and balance your system and to improve cell renewal and the release of cell secretions.
The treatment may additionally involve, if appropriate, the use of ‘moxa’, a dried herb which is heated directly on the skin, or nearby, to warm the acupoint and enhance the effectiveness of the treatment. Other techniques such as gua-sha, auriculotherapy or kinesio-taping may be used to further support the treatments.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
The number of treatments required will vary from person to person, the severity of the condition, or how long you have been suffering with it. Generally speaking however, it is recommended to plan to have a first treatment, with four or more follow-up sessions spaced roughly at weekly/bi-weekly intervals to improve effectiveness.
In the longer-term, many people choose to have an acupuncture treatment monthly or every 6-8 weeks, to maintain results, to help address issues as they arise or as ‘preventative medicine’ supporting general health and wellbeing.
