Patients of any age, even babies and toddlers can receive acupuncture procedures and the discipline is frequently used to relieve conditions such as sleeping problems, arthritis, anxiety, lower back pain, migraine headaches and postoperative pain. While acupuncture and other alternative therapies are for the most part unregulated at the moment, it would be a good idea to make certain you get a therapist in Poole who is qualified and who's a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC).

About Acupuncture: The old Chinese therapy known as acupuncture, whereby fine needles are placed in the client's skin for therapeutic reasons, has been used for 1000's of years. Armed with the proper training an acupuncturist can get rid of health problems which conventional medical procedures have tried unsuccessfully to overcome, and is especially useful with issues such as sleeping problems, arthritis, anxiety, lower back pain, migraine headaches and postoperative pain. An alternative therapy and pseudoscience which is practiced across the globe, acupuncture is a central part of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) in addition to things like cupping therapy, exercise (qigong), gua sha, herbal medicine, bonesetter (die-da), massage (tui na) and dietary therapy.

Practiced for upwards of three thousand yrs, acupuncture was developed as a way of opening up the energy channels to free the flow of life force (Qi), to help with pain relief. Focused on stimulating the nerve endings which are located just under the skin surface, modern medical acupuncture therapy improves the emissions of endorphins (produced by the central nervous system) to numb irritation and pain around the entire body. If you've got any reservations regarding the use of what was at one time considered a "quack" therapy, you can be assured that the benefits of acupuncture treatments have been tested and acknowledged for a variety of medical afflictions, and studies have been published containing the evidence discovered. Acupuncture is also perfect for "relaxation" based therapies that are applied to ease the effects of stress type illnesses such as depression, anxiety and panic attacks.

For anybody who is new to acupuncture there'll be a consultation prior to the first session, when you can discuss with a consultant acupuncturist your symptoms and you'll be asked a few general questions regarding your lifestyle. The purpose of this preliminary appointment is so that the acupuncturist can get to grips with you and your issues, and design a plan of treatment that will be perfect for your individual needs. The recommended plans of treatment might sometimes be entirely different even for people suffering from identical symptoms. Thus you may have a friend in Poole with similar complaints to you who have received some other type of acupuncture procedure.

As soon as the treatment commences, fine needles will be positioned into the body's meridian lines which are relevant for the patient's symptoms. Quite often these might be in places that don't, to the layman, appear connected to the problem area. For instance, a needle could be placed into a meridian point on the hand of a patient to ease a migraine headache. It's a wise idea to be wearing loose clothing when booked in for an acupuncture session because a lot of the more regularly used treatment points are found in the lower limbs and legs and quick access to these parts is needed by the therapist.

Shortly after treatment you are likely to feel tired or dopy. Thus it is suggested not to drive a car right after the procedure. This allows the body to come round in a natural way, allowing it to rest for a little while. Since this feeling of listlessness can often continue for an hour or more, work plans may be impacted, so make allowances for this in advance.

In Poole and other regions of Dorset, you'll find that there are numerous styles of acupuncture on offer, some which are standalone treatments, whilst others have distinct objectives. Among the most used related practices are auricular acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, trigger point acupuncture, cosmetic acupuncture, dry-needling acupuncture, fire needling, sonopuncture, bee venom acupuncture, Chinese acupuncture, cupping therapy, moxibustion, Japanese acupuncture, Korean acupuncture, Tui Na massage and acupressure.

Will Acupuncture Work For You?

Does Acupuncture Work?

"Does acupuncture really work?" is a typical question that is quite often asked and I guess that there is not a conclusive answer to that question given that it is somewhat subjective and depends upon who exactly you ask. Some acupuncture patients will say "it doesn't work" because it failed to work for them, while other acupuncture patients in Poole might say "it really is wonderful and transformed my life", as it evidently had positive results on their complaint. Every kind of medical therapy has got its opponents and supporters and such differences are particularly common with alternative medicines where there are always going to be doubts about their credibility.

Acupuncture Meridians and Acupuncture Points

Acupuncture Needles Poole - Acupuncture Points

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine the body contains over 400 acupuncture points and the majority of these are found on one or other of the pathways or meridians that transport our life energy (chi) and affect health and wellness. The main or primary meridians that are used in acupuncture therapies - the bladder, the small intestine, the large intestine, the spleen, the pericardium, the triple energizer, the gallbladder, the kidney, the liver, the heart, the stomach, the lung - number twelve in total, are all associated with the internal organs of the body. The other eight which are classified as "extraordinary" meridians do not have any direct connections with the organs but purely share points with the principal meridians. Every single one of these points are distinguished by the meridian upon which they're positioned and their numbers refer to the sequence upon that channel. These acupuncture points have been allocated some unusual names and these ones - Middle Palace, Cubit Marsh, Supreme Abyss, Lesser Shang, Broken Sequence, Maximum Opening, Channel Gutter, Fish Border, Cloud Gate, Clasping the White, Palace of Heaven - are the eleven which are associated with the lungs, and are numbered LU-1 - LU-12, though not in that precise order.

Does Acupuncture Hurt?

Does Acupuncture Hurt?

Although acupuncture calls for the insertion of long needles, the process hardly ever hurts to any great degree, other than a sharp prick when work is required on the toes and fingers. A slight pulsating or tingling sensation might be experienced when the acupuncture needle is inserted and perhaps a dull ache around the base of the needle after it's penetrated the client's skin. Acupuncture needles are very thin and they measure from around 0.12mm to 0.35mm thick, and they are something like one tenth the thickness of a standard hypodermic needle (the type used for injections). The acupuncture experience is different for each client and at the end of the day what is true for one might not be the same for another, but by and large .... no, acupuncture does not hurt at all.
