Acupuncture

with Victoria Moss

Acupuncture is an ancient system of medicine originating in Asia that has been used effectively as a holistic healing method for over 2,000 years. It works on the underlying principle that illness and pain occur when the body's Qi, or vital energy, cannot flow freely through the body's energy channels, known as meridians. There can be many reasons for this, including emotional and physical stress, poor nutrition, infection or injury. By inserting ultra-fine sterile needles into specific acupuncture points, the acupuncturist seeks to re-establish the free flow of Qi to restore balance and trigger the body's natural healing response.  

 

Five Element Acupuncture 

 

The five elements are Water, Wood, Fire, Earth and Metal and they are a fundamental and integral part of Chinese medicine and philosophy. Each element is associated with different organs, seasons, emotions, odours, colours, sounds and times of day. Everyone has all of the elements within them. Five element acupuncturists seek to find and treat the root cause of disease by diagnosing the element that is in distress. The focus is very much on the individual, not just their symptoms or illness, and treatment aims to bring about balance in the whole person - body, mind and spirit. It is used by many people as a preventative measure to strengthen their constitution and improve their immune system. It is highly effective in addressing stress and emotional problems before they lead to more serious illness. Patients often report an improvement in their feeling of general wellbeing, increased energy, improved sleep, and reduced stress.

Shonishin Paediatric Acupuncture 

with Victoria Moss

 

Shonishin (Japanese paediatric acupuncture) is a unique type of non-needle acupuncture designed especially for the treatment of babies and children. It has been practised in Japan for over 250 years. In recognition of the fact that babies and children do not like needles, Shonishin uses painless, non-invasive techniques such as tapping, stroking and rubbing with different tools to stimulate the meridians and acupuncture points to bring about balance in the child's vital energy (Qi) and strengthen their constitution. It is a very gentle but very effective approach and has a strong therapeutic effect.  

 

Shonishin is used to treat babies and young children with disturbed sleep, digestive problems, irritability, anxiety, hyperactivity, a weakened immune system, and other conditions.
