Stimulates the healing and regenerative processes within the body.
Acupuncture In Sheffield
Acupuncture is one of the oldest forms of medicine dating back more than 5000 years. The traditional Chinese view is that when we are healthy energy flows freely through the body in channels called meridians. If there is a problem the energy will stagnate, stimulation of the appropriate acupuncture points frees this stagnation.
Is Acupuncture Safe?
It’s very safe, only pre-sterilised single use needles are used, and they are inserted accurately into the acupuncture points.
Does Acupuncture Hurt?
Most people who have acupuncture from a skilled practitioner are amazed how comfortable it feels. As it stimulates the healing and regenerative processes within the body people often experience a wonderful sense of calm, and notice improved sleep and a feeling of well being after each session.
Is Acupuncture Effective?
There is increasing scientific evidence to support the effects. It has been shown for instance that acupuncture stimulates the brain to produce natural pain relieving chemicals called endorphins. Some people experience rapid improvement in their condition with only a few sessions while others take longer to respond. Part of the reason for this variation is that some people are naturally better responders than others while some conditions are more deep seated and naturally require more treatment to produce a beneficial effect.
