Acupuncture is a treatment used as part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), an oriental healthcare system that originated in China over more than 3,000 years ago.
It involves the use of single-use sterile needles about the width of a human hair. These needles are inserted into specific body points (Acupuncture points). In Chinese Medicine these points are known as neural nodes or jie. Acupuncture heals the body by stimulating these nodes which affect both the central and peripheral nervous systems.
These nervous system signals then trigger the brain to release the body’s internal chemicals such as endorphins and enkephalins. These chemicals have pain-relieving properties and improve immune function.
Acupuncture can be helpful in treating women’s health problems (infertility, menopausal symptoms, menstrual cycle problems as well as being an aid in the I.V.F process), insomnia, lower back pain, neck pain, hand pain, headaches to name but a few. Studies are continuing to show that acupuncture is effective for many other ailments. The number of treatments depend on the condition being treated but typically the effects are cumulative.
Other treatments, which may be used in conjunction with acupuncture in a session, include cupping, moxibustion (heat), gua sha, massage, lifestyle advice and therapeutic exercises.
