Aberdeen Acupuncture - Mr Acupuncture

 

INTRODUCTION

Acupuncture is one of the oldest forms of healing known to mankind.  It originated in China nearly 5000 years ago.  The fact that it is still being practised widely today says much about the effectiveness of this treatment and for the truth of the principles on which it is based.

It prevents and treats diseases by stimulating certain points on meridians of the body by using very fine needles (which are hardly thicker than your hair), moxibustion, cupping or massage. 

TREATING THE WHOLE PERSON 

Chinese medicine looks at disease in a very unique way.  By taking into account the broader context of your life, from your physical and emotional state through to your lifestyle, the Acupuncture Practitioner can draw on a more complete picture of your condition.  On the basis of this, it is possible to see the deeper pattern of disharmony underlying the specific symptoms.  Treatment is directed towards correcting the underlying disharmony.  Acupuncture is a gentle yet powerful method of harmonising the internal forces within your body to restore your health and well-being. 

DIAGNOSIS 

The Acupuncturist will question you to gain an all-round picture of your situation, make observations of your tongue and pulse and undertake a physical examination if appropriate.  What the Acupuncturist is looking for, is not any symptom in isolation, but rather a pattern into which is woven a total picture of the patient.  Tongue and pulse diagnoses are highly refined in Chinese medicine.  

NEEDLES 

Disposable needles only are used.  The needles are used once and once only before being disposed of. 

PREVENTION 

Acupuncture has a significant contribution to make in increasing your vitality and energy and zest for life.  Acupuncturists are trained to recognise disease often long before you are aware of any problem.  Treatment at this early stage can prevent a more serious condition developing. 

TREATMENT 

For your initial visit the Practitioner allows enough time to gather information on:  a your symptoms, the history and treatment to date;    b your medical and family history;  c the behaviour of your various systems,  eg how you sleep, whether your digestion is good;  and      d your physical condition, eg distribution of body heat or the condition of your skin. 

The number of treatments required depends entirely on the problem.  Generally, the more recent the illness, the fewer treatments are required. 

DOES IT HURT? 

The needles used are solid and much finer than those used for injections or withdrawing blood.  In most cases, only a slight prick is felt when the needle goes through the skin.  When the needle reaches the Acupuncture point there is another sensation, often described as a tingly or numb feeling.  The sensation is pleasantly relaxing.  There are no harmful side-effects.
