Used widely for the relief of dental pain, back pain, arthritis, sleeping problems, anxiety and headaches, acupuncture can be given to patients of any age, even very young children. Whilst acupuncture as well as other "alternative treatments" are by and large unregulated at this time, it would be a good idea to be sure that you use an acupuncture therapist in Newport who is qualified and is a signed up member of the BAcC (British Acupuncture Council).

Acupuncture - A Potted Guide: Acupuncture is an old Chinese medical treatment method where thin needles are inserted in the patient's skin to get healing results. With the correct training an acupuncturist can eliminate health problems which conventional medical procedures have failed to overcome, and is especially useful with afflictions like dental pain, back pain, arthritis, sleeping problems, anxiety and headaches. A pseudoscience and alternative medicine which is practiced all around the world, acupuncture is a leading component of traditional Chinese medicine as well as treatments like exercise (qigong), dietary therapy, cupping therapy, bonesetter (die-da), herbal medicine, massage (tui na) and gua sha.

Used as a technique for opening up your energy channels to free the flow of life force (Qi), acupuncture has been practiced for over three thousand yrs. Contemporary medical acupuncture centers on the stimulation of nerve endings just beneath the skin which increases the discharge of endorphins (produced by the central nervous system) to alleviate pain and discomfort around the body. No matter which method you choose, the beneficial effects of acupuncture have been studied and identified for a great deal of medical issues. Acupuncture is also perfect for "relaxation" centered therapies which can be employed to ease the effects of stress related illnesses such as anxiety, depression and panic attacks.

Acupuncturists in Newport (01633)

Most competent acupuncturists in Newport will ask you to attend a consultation, which should take place in advance of your initial session of treatment. You will be asked a handful of typical questions in relation to your lifestyle. This chat aids the acupuncturist to come up with a treatment plan designed specifically for you. Occasionally it may even be the case that two patients will receive two entirely different treatment plans despite the fact that they've got the same symptoms. It is perfectly possible that you will know of another individual in Newport with pretty much the same symptoms to you who is being given a different acupuncture treatment plan.

Once the treatment begins, thin needles will be positioned into the body's meridian lines which are associated with the person's ailments. Such insertion points will often not be directly associated with the problem area in the body, or at any rate not in a non-professional's eyes. For instance, a needle might be placed into a meridian point on a patient's hand to relieve a migraine. A large number of the more regularly used treatment spots are found upon the legs and lower limbs, so it is best to wear loosish fitting clothing to enable accessibility to these places.

Going through an acupuncture procedure can quite often make you experience fatigue and lethargy. So it is recommended that you do not drive right after the procedure. Before carrying on with with your day, it is vital that you give your body time to rest and allow it to recover normally. Considering these feelings of lethargy can sometimes continue for an hour or more, work plans might be affected, so make allowances for this in advance.

Acupuncture Meridians and Acupuncture Points

Acupuncture Needles Newport - Acupuncture Points

There are more than 400 acupuncture points within the body of a human, according to Traditional Chinese Medicine, the majority of which are located on the meridians (pathways) which transport the body's chi or qi (life energy). The primary meridians used in acupuncture therapy - the stomach, the heart, the gallbladder, the kidney, the spleen, the small intestine, the liver, the triple energizer, the bladder, the lung, the large intestine, the pericardium - number twelve in all, are all linked to the body's internal organs. The other eight which are called the "extraordinary" meridians don't have any immediate connections with the organs but simply share points with the primary meridians. Each and every one of these points are designated by the meridian on which they are found and their numbers refer to their point sequence on that specific channel. These acupuncture points are given some fairly elaborate names, for example there are eleven acupuncture points associated with the lung and their names translate to Cubit Marsh, Supreme Abyss, Middle Palace, Fish Border, Cloud Gate, Broken Sequence, Palace of Heaven, Maximum Opening, Lesser Shang, Clasping the White, Channel Gutter, and they're numbered LU-1 to LU-12 (not in the order given).

Does Acupuncture Hurt?

Does Acupuncture Hurt?

Although acupuncture needles inserted in certain extremities (for instance fingers and toes) can result in a sharp prick, by and large acupuncture seldom hurts. A slight tingling or pulsating sensation might be felt when the needle is inserted and possibly a dull aching around the needle base once it has penetrated the client's skin. The needles used for acupuncture are exceptionally thin ranging from about 0.12mm to 0.35mm in thickness, which means they are about a tenth the thickness of a traditional hypodermic needle (the type used for injections). The acupuncture experience is actually different for each and every patient and when all is said and done what is true for one might not be relevant for another, but in general .... no, acupuncture does not hurt at all.

Dry Needle Therapy Newport

Sometimes employed by acupuncturists in Newport, dry needling (or myofascial trigger point dry needling) is a sort of alternative procedure. Sometimes called the Western variation of acupuncture, dry needling is a kind of IMS (intramuscular stimulation). Many actual advocates of alternative treatments, such as physical therapists, acupuncturists and osteopaths would state that it is much more about having a deep understanding of the musculoskeletal system and neuroanatomy. Parts of the body that are experiencing chronic spasms, soft tissue injuries and muscle pain will be pinpointed by the treatment, as trigger points are uncovered by the dry needling practitioner. The dry needling approach is aimed at issues with bodily imbalances, poor posture and muscular injuries.
