Most often used to help with headaches, postoperative pain, stress, sleeping disorders, arthritis and back pain, acupuncture can be given to sufferers of all ages, even very young children. Whilst acupuncture and various other alternative treatments are on the whole unregulated at the moment, it is best to be sure that you use an acupuncture therapist in Epsom who is qualified and who is a member of the British Acupuncture Council.

Acupuncture Epsom Surrey

A Brief Look at Acupuncture: Acupuncture is an age old Chinese healing procedure when thin needles are placed in the sufferer's skin to get beneficial effects. A practiced therapist in acupuncture is able to alleviate discomforts linked to headaches, postoperative pain, stress, sleeping disorders, arthritis and back pain in instances where conventional medicine has failed. Alongside things like cupping therapy, dietary therapy, bonesetter (die-da), gua sha, massage (tui na), exercise (qigong) and herbal medicine, acupuncture is practiced around the world and is a pseudoscience and alternative therapy which represents a principal component of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine).

Employed as a procedure for opening up the energy channels to release the flow of life force, or Qi, acupuncture has been practiced for over three thousand years. Modern medical acupuncture targets the stimulation of nerve endings just underneath the skin which raises the emissions of endorphins (produced by the central nervous system) to alleviate pain around the body. The beneficial claims of acupuncture have been investigated and recognized for a wide variety of medical illnesses. Acupuncture is also great for "relaxation" centred treatments which are used to ease the effects of stress related disorders such as depression, panic attacks and anxiety.

Acupuncturists in Epsom (01372)

Most professional acupuncturists in Epsom will request that you attend a preliminary consultation, which will take place before your first acupuncture treatment. You'll be asked one or two basic questions with regards to your lifestyle. This discussion helps the acupuncture professional to create a treatment plan exclusively designed to suit your needs. The recommended treatment procedures could be totally different even when there are two patients experiencing similar issues. Therefore, you shouldn't be shocked if you encounter somebody else in Epsom who's having a completely different course of treatment, despite the fact that they're experiencing precisely the same symptoms as you.

The acupuncture treatment consists of placing tiny needles into the meridian lines in the body which match the patient's symptoms. These insertion points are generally in locations that you would not automatically associate with the problem at hand. For instance, a needle might be placed into a meridian point on the hand of a sufferer to relieve a migraine. It's a good idea to wear loose fitting garments when you are booked in for an acupuncture session because a lot of the most commonly used meridian points are located in the legs and lower limbs and clear access to these spots is required by the therapist.

It is perfectly normal to feel lethargy and exhaustion after an acupuncture treatment. It is suggested that you do not drive a car straight after acupuncture treatment. This allows the body to come round naturally and slowly, giving it time to rest for a little while. Because this feeling of lethargy could possibly continue for some hours, work plans might be affected, so make allowances for this in advance.

Incorporated within the "acupuncture" discipline are several different kinds of treatment, some that have their own distinct purposes and some that are standalone procedures. A handful of these are available in the Epsom area, for others you may need to travel further afield. Similar techniques include treatments like: moxibustion, Tui Na massage, Chinese acupuncture, Japanese acupuncture, trigger point acupuncture, auricular acupuncture, guasha, electro-acupuncture, cupping therapy, acupressure, bee venom acupuncture, cosmetic acupuncture, fire needling, sonopuncture and dry-needling acupuncture.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) the body features more than four hundred acupuncture points and pretty much all of those points are found on one or other of the pathways or meridians that transport your life energy (chi) and affect health and wellness. The 12 main or primary meridians which are related to the internal organs of the body are the spleen, the large intestine, the small intestine, the bladder, the liver, the pericardium, the lung, the kidney, the heart, the stomach, the triple energizer, the gallbladder, the other pathways (of which there are eight) are classified as "extraordinary" meridians. Each of these acupuncture points are distinguished by the meridian upon which they are located and their numbers coincide with their point position upon that channel. There are some unusual names that are affiliated with these acupuncture points and these 11 - Fish Border, Supreme Abyss, Cubit Marsh, Broken Sequence, Channel Gutter, Palace of Heaven, Middle Palace, Maximum Opening, Lesser Shang, Cloud Gate, Clasping the White - are those for the lungs, that are numbered LU-1 - LU-12.
