Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese system of healing which has been used for thousands of years to successfully treat many common conditions. Modern science has shown that acupuncture can stimulate release of chemicals which stimulate the body’s natural defences. Extremely fine needles are inserted into specific points to increase the flow of Qi (vital energy) and enhance the immune system.

Acupuncture works on three levels:
1. Helps release the body’s own natural painkillers and anti-inflammatory abilities
2. Increases blood flow and so helps to eliminate toxins
3. Helps to regenerate the body and fight illnesses
Acupuncture can successfully treat Stress and Anxiety, Back Pain, Arthritis, Headaches, Tinnitus, Sciatica, Painful and Irregular Periods, Nausea and Morning Sickness, Infertility, Panic Attacks, Diarrhoea, Night Sweats.

Acupuncture assists in treating not only immediate symptoms, but also underlying constitutional imbalances by improving overall health and immune system. Many people say they feel greater energy and focus following a course of Acupuncture. Acupuncture is as effective in treating either acute or chronic conditions and avoids side effects. Early treatment of minor symptoms can help prevent more serious health problems worsening or even developing.

Can I get cross infection from acupuncture?
A: The acupuncture needles are always sterilised before use. To eliminate any possibility of getting AIDS, or other infectious diseases, only disposable needles are used (and used once only then disposed of safely)at Fu’s Natural Healing Centre to ensure that the strictest standards of sterilisation are maintained (approved by the Department of Health) to protect against HIV, Hepatitis B or any other virus.

What about the needles used?
A: We only use single use pre-sterilised disposable needles, which are disposed of after each treatment. As members of The Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine (UK) and The Federation of Traditional Chinese Medicine, we observe the Code of Practice closely, which lays down stringent standards of hygiene and sterilisation of equipment.
