What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a part of the system of Traditional East Asian Medicine and is based on the understanding that as human beings, our health and wellbeing is dependant upon the condition of our body, mind and spirit. It is thus a holistic system of medicine, based on centuries of wisdom and clinical experience, passed down through successive generations of physicians from China, Japan and now also in the West.
How does acupuncture work?
From a Traditional East Asian medicine perspective, human beings consist of a system of channels or meridians flowing through the body. By balancing the flow of qi (energy) and blood through the channels, and balancing the yin and yang energies, acupuncture can support the body-mind to heal itself. Diagnosis is based on the condition of the channels, the abdomen (hara) and the wrist pulse and the main signs and symptoms the patient is experiencing.
In the original Chinese characters, the term acupuncture actually means “needles and moxibustion”. Very fine needles are inserted into the qi energetic stream, either into the body or just above the skin. Most clients don’t experience any pain or discomfort during an acupuncture session with me.
Moxibustion is the burning of the herb mugwort or artemisia and works to balance and harmonise the body. Together, needling and moxibustion can assist the body-mind and spirit to rest, recover and to heal. Other tools may also be used to balance the qi, blood, yin and yang.
