What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a traditional medical treatment originating in China that has been practiced for over two thousand years. It has been subject to intense research to provide the effectiveness of its mechanism.
According to the principles of Chinese medicine, the body has numerous meridian channels through which ‘Qi’, or the body’s vital energy, flows. Acupuncturists stimulate specific points along these meridians, usually near the nerves, by inserting fine needles to access the body’s Qi energy.
This form of treatment can help alleviate pain, treat various health conditions, boost blood flow, relax your muscles and tendon relaxations, improve your energy levels and help enhance your body’s natural healing abilities.
It offers you a natural, holistic form of pain relief. We incorporate acupuncture alongside our other treatment methods as part of our comprehensive, holistic approach to improving your health, assisting in recovery, and surpassing all treatment goals.
At Happipuncture, our patients are always at the centre of everything we do. All of our treatments are individually tailored to transform your health and well-being, so if you have any questions about our acupuncture treatments or would like to arrange a free consultation, please get in touch with us at 092182992.
How It Works
Traditional Chinese acupuncture is based on theories about patterns of energy flow through the body. It is an ancient and holistic system of medicine that treats pain and illness as signs that the body is out of balance and rests on the belief that imbalances in this flow of vital energy can trigger ailments.
Acupuncturists believe that when the body’s energy channels become blocked, like a trapped nerve, Qi energy can no longer flow freely through the body, causing illness and pain. Acupuncture is used to remove these blockages, restore a balanced flow of Qi energy and improve your health.
Modern acupuncture combines elements of the traditional practice with understandings of anatomy and neurophysiology.
Numerous studies have shown that acupuncture can decrease inflammation and reduce pain. It also helps stimulate the nervous system, sending signals to the brain to release hormones such as endorphins, which can boost feelings of happiness and reduce your pain.
It involves the insertion and manipulation of sterilised, disposable, ultra-fine needles into appropriate acupuncture points along the body that are located alongside meridians or channels. These places may even be well away from the specific part you aim to treat.
The needles will be left in place for a short period of time, depending on the response required. Needles used in acupuncture are very fine, and many people barely even feel the acupuncturist inserting them.
Acupuncture has become increasingly popular in countries outside of China and as a complement to Western therapies and medicine. Here at Happipuncture, all of our acupuncturists have advanced training in the field and can perform this service to assist with your rehabilitation needs.
