Acupuncture and Shiatsu in Central London, Covent Garden, and South East London
Acupuncture is a medical therapy which treats people with a wide range of physical and emotional conditions. Treatment is given according to an individual's specific diagnosis and needs; pulse and tongue diagnosis are made, as well as a discussion about health history and symptoms to identify the particular pattern of disharmony. Fine, sterile acupuncture needles are then inserted into the skin at influential locations on the body to improve or correct the flow of blood and energy in order to restore and promote health.
Taking an holistic approach, acupuncture treatment acknowledges the significance of maintaining a healthy balance between mind, body and spirit, and offers treatment and lifestyle guidance to help create better health and well-being. For example, when treating women to improve fertility, we also promote healthy conception and pregnancy by ensuring a nourishing diet, a healthy relationship, a peaceful, calm mind, and regular and appropriate exercise.
At the heart of the Traditional Chinese Medicine model is the concept and practice of yangsheng or 'nourishment of life'. This concept evolved and was refined over time from the careful observations of doctors, scientists, philosophers and practitioners of the arts of health cultivation, and today is used to offer people a profound and simple way to realise and achieve better health. Acupuncture treatment encompasses this approach, and treats illnesses whilst raising awareness of the root patterns which create them, and actively promotes those which create good health. Nourishing and attending to all aspects of ones being is considered essential to living a healthy, happy life. This includes balancing emotional and mental well-being, having a good diet, doing regular healthy exercise, maintaining healthy relationships, nourishing ones creativity and passions, and having a healthy work/life balance, and so on. Working in this way people often say they have more energy, are calmer, and begin to feel more like themselves.
Shiatsu is a form of Japanese bodywork which shares its roots in traditional Chinese medicine. Closely related to acupuncture, shiatsu uses touch, pressure and stretches to revitalise and re energise the body and mind. By calming and rebalancing the nervous system, shiatsu can help with reducing stress, relaxing the mind, and helps engage the body's innate healing processes, regulating the somatic rhythms, such as a healthy menstrual cycle which promotes fertility.
