ACUPUNCTURE IN HAMPSTEAD - LONDON
According to the laws of Oriental Medicine, our health is dependent on the harmony and balance of natural energy (or Qi) within us. This energy flows along meridians throughout the entire body. Sometimes the flow will become disrupted or blocked for one reason or another (emotional upset, physical trauma, poor diet or overwork are all common examples). By inserting very fine needles into specific points along the energy meridians, acupuncture can move or redirect energy to where it is needed most and stimulate the body’s healing response.
What to expect from your first treatment
Acupuncture is a safe technique utilising sterile, single-use needles. When a needle is inserted you may not actually feel it at all – the sensation can be tingling, warm, or dull. The feeling may be unusual, but not painful, even the most anxious of people find treatment relaxing. Patients often find that a course of acupuncture leads to better sleep patterns, increased energy levels, and enhanced wellbeing. An acupuncture session may also encompass other techniques such as massage, moxibustion or cupping.
What we treat
Acupuncture is used to treat a wide variety of conditions including musculoskeletal and pain related conditions, pre-conceptual care, pregnancy support and pre-birth acupuncture.
