What is Acupuncture?: Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese treatment whereby thin needles are placed into the person's skin to achieve remedial effects. A trained and certified acupuncturist may help eliminate problems in connection with osteoarthritis, lower back pain and migraine headaches to mention only 3 of the most typical issues. As well as techniques like cupping therapy, herbal medicine, exercise (qigong), gua sha, dietary therapy, bonesetter (die-da) and massage (tui na), acupuncture is practiced across the world and is an alternative therapy and pseudoscience which represents a principal part of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine).

Employed as a technique for opening up your energy channels to release the circulation of life force, or Qi (pronounced chee), acupuncture has been around for over three thousand years. Focused on stimulating the nerve endings that are located just under the skin, modern medical acupuncture treatment enhances the emissions of endorphins to help ease pain and irritation around the body. The benefits of acupuncture therapies have been investigated and confirmed for a significant number of medical disorders. The treatment can also be applied as a sort of relaxation strategy for those struggling with panic and anxiety disorders.

If you have not undergone acupuncture previously there'll be an assessment prior to the first session, when you can discuss with a consultant acupuncturist your symptoms and asked one or two general questions about your personal lifestyle. This dialogue aids the acupuncturist to formulate a treatment plan designed exclusively for you personally. Indeed, it isn't unheard of for two people with almost comparable symptoms to receive 2 totally different treatment options. It is perfectly feasible that you will know of someone else in Didcot with much the same symptoms to you who is being given a different acupuncture treatment solution.

In the course of the procedure, the fine needles are inserted into the body's meridian lines that match the symptoms of the patient. In many instances these insertion points can be in locations that don't, at first, seem to be associated with the problem area. To describe this more clearly, an acupuncturist might stick needles in the meridian point on the client's hand in an effort to treat a shoulder pain or a migraine headache. It is sensible to be wearing loose fitting garments when you are heading off for an acupuncture session since lots of the more frequently used treatment points are in the lower limbs and legs and quick access to these spots is needed by the therapist.

Before you continue with your day, it's imperative that you give your body a bit of time to relax and allow it to recuperate normally. These feelings of lethargy can often continue for a few hours, so you must factor this into your work plans.

Moxibustion Didcot

Moxibustion Didcot (01235)

An alternative treatment that is frequently used in combination with acupuncture and tui na (Chinese massage), moxa therapy (or moxibustion) describes the process of burning dried mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris) on particular areas of the body to warm and stimulate acupoints. Moxa can be used in various ways including: placing it on the end of an acupuncture needle, in the form of a cone which is placed on a shielding medium directly onto the body and as a moxa stick - a cigar like contraption that is lit at one end. Moxibustion (moxa therapy) is employed to encourage healing, heat up the body and stimulate the circulation. Moxibustion is regularly employed for digestive problems, infertility, pain alleviation, weakness and arthritis. Moxibustion Breech - Some pregnant mothers with babies in the breech position, try moxibustion treatments to correct this breech presentation (normally at 32-38 weeks).

Acupuncture - Does it Hurt?

Does Acupuncture Hurt?

Acupuncture hardly ever hurts to any great degree however needles inserted in certain extremities may give a sharp prick. A tingling may be felt as the needle is inserted and maybe a dull aching round the needle base after it's penetrated the client's skin. The needles utilized in acupuncture are very thin and they measure from about 0.12mm to 0.35mm in thickness, and they're something like a tenth the thickness of a hypodermic needle (the kind used for injections). When all is said and done the acupuncture experience will be different for each and every client, and what's true for one may not necessarily be the same for another, but generally speaking .... no, acupuncture isn't going to hurt.

Dry Needling Treatments Didcot

Often practiced by acupuncturists in Didcot, dry needling is a sort of alternative therapy treatment. Frequently called the Western variation of acupuncture, dry needling is a type of IMS (intramuscular stimulation). Many people in Didcot who practice it however, would express that it's much more about having a deep understanding of the musculoskeletal system and neuroanatomy. Trigger points will be found by the dry needling therapist as the procedure is carried out, to identify the parts of the body which are afflicted by persistent spasms, muscle pains and soft tissue injuries. Addressing issues with bodily imbalance, poor posture and muscular injury, dry needling can be beneficial for many disorders.
