Acupuncture is a form of healthcare that has been established for hundreds and thousands of years with techniques and methods developed and refined over its practice. Acupuncture focuses on the patient individually, adapting the treatment depending on the patient’s needs and symptoms.
Acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific locations of the body to stimulate certain hormones. This form of treatment is relatively painless and can provide excellent relief for symptoms from illnesses or long term chronic pain. Acupuncture can also be an alternative for patients who do not wish to go down the route of conventional treatment or want to provide themselves with additional treatment.
Acupuncture has been extensively researched and studied over many years to prove its benefits for patients. Although all individuals’ body chemistry is different, in many cases patients and acupuncture practitioners see an improvement in symptoms.
The most common health issues treated with acupuncture include back, neck and shoulder pain, menopause, arthritis and infertility. Individuals suffering from back, neck or shoulder pain may rely on self-mediation such as ibuprofen. However research has identified that over time the patient may have to take more in order to receive the same amount of pain relief. Acupuncture can provide an effective pain relief, leading to long term effects if used alone or alongside additional treatments such as physiotherapy.
