acupuncture & traditional chinese medicine
What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a safe and effective therapeutic technique used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for thousands of years. Acupuncture seeks to eliminate the root cause of your health problem bringing your body back into balance. Treatment involves inserting very fine needles into specific points around the body which correspond to various energetic pathways. Maryanne will choose points specifically suited to your health concerns that stimulate and manipulate the flow of energy, nutrients and blood throughout your body in a way that supports your own body’s natural ability to heal itself.
What are the benefits of acupuncture treatment?
Acupuncture works by encouraging the body’s innate self-healing abilities so the benefits can be extremely widespread. Research suggests that Acupuncture can help relieve both chronic and acute pain disorders; specially in the neck, jaw, shoulder, lower back and knees. It can help manage headaches, migraines, sciatica, osteoarthritis. In addition, there is evidence to suggest that acupuncture has a positive effect on a wide range of other conditions including digestive disorders, insomnia, hormonal imbalances, anxiety and depression to name just a few.
Acupuncture is a safe and relaxing treatment without many side effects when performed by a qualified and registered Acupuncturist.
What can i expect from my first treatment?
Your first treatment will consist of a thorough consultation whereby you will be asked detailed questions relating to your overall health, health history and the main problem that you are seeking treatment for.
You will then be given an Acupuncture treatment on your front or back which may also include other Traditional Chinese Medicine treatment techniques like cupping, massage or moxibustion. Maryanne will talk you through each stage of your treatment, ensuring that you are comfortable and well informed throughout the entire process.
Following your first treatment you will be provided with an individualised treatment plan which includes an estimated course of treatment plus recommendations on diet, lifestyle, herbal formulas or supplements to compliment your course of treatment.
