How Acupuncture Works
Chinese Medicine provides a comprehensive frame of reference and most effective working model through which to practice acupuncture. The acupuncture points are used in combination rather than for isolated functions, chosen according to identified patterns of disharmony. Chinese medicine sees mental, physical and emotional symptoms equally as signs and symptoms of an underlying imbalance. This unique way of looking at each individual in health and illness takes a holistic view of the interconnections between systems, between functions of mind and body and of external influences, and has valuable insights into why people feel pain or become unwell. Although it uses different terminology, Chinese Medicine offers vital insights into health and wellbeing that are still valid today.
“Acupuncture has its own diagnostic system, that of Chinese Medicine, which due to its holistic nature provides a truly individual approach to treatment.”
Moxibustion is an essential part of Chinese medicine, used alongside acupuncture, and patients often report how soothing and enjoyable they find the gentle warmth of this treatment.
