Our McTimoney Chiropractor, Carol, has more recently completed a degree in Oriental Acupuncture and has been practising this alongside her Chiropractic treatment for well over a year now.
Acupuncture has been used in the East for thousands of years and is now widely accepted by mainstream healthcare in Europe.
Acupuncture aims to stimulate the natural healing process and re-balance the body by using fine needles along the energy channels. Your health can be disrupted in many ways, such as trauma, diet, lifestyle and emotional factors, this can cause imbalances in the body and ultimately lead to illness.
Acupuncture is suitable for everyone and the medical research into Acupuncture shows favourable outcomes in enhancing and maintaining general well-being.
Your first appointment will include a full consultation detailing your medical history and a Chinese body, tongue and pulse diagnosis to formulate a treatment specifically for your individual needs.
Carol feels that this is an important addition to the services that she already offers.
Acupuncture not only targets the body and what can go wrong with the mechanics of it but it will also target more systemic problems and auto-immune disorders; therefore widening the scope for helping most conditions, treating the mind, body and spirit.
