Chinese Herbal Medicine
Margré de Vries/Prajnadevi
Acupuncture is a system of healing which has been practiced with great effect for thousands of years. It is based upon the principle that our health is dependent on the smooth, uninterrupted flow of subtle energy that runs through inter-connecting channels known as meridians in the body. The flow of energy gets disturbed by stress, anxiety, poor nutrition, infections or trauma.
Acupuncture involves the use of ultra fine sterile needles inserted at chosen points along the meridians. The aim is to stimulate the body's own healing response, and assist it towards returning to its natural balance.
Our acupuncturists practice TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) and 5 element styles of acupuncture, having undergone comprehensive training over a number of years. TCM treats the underlying physical cause of disease or imbalance whereas 5 -element acupuncture is based on the premise that your particular underlying ‘element’ is out of balance and upsets your equilibrium. This may manifest on a more emotional or spiritual level. As an integrated system it addresses the whole person, from the physical to the spiritual. Both systems of acupuncture are integrated.
There is a considerable body of research evidence about the effectiveness of acupuncture. You can find a selection at the Acupuncture Research Resource Centre or the British Acupuncture Council. The World Health Organisation (WHO) lists conditions for which acupuncture may be helpful. Acupuncture has been shown to be effective in treating back pain and the NHS recommends acupuncture in the treatment of back pain.
