Acupuncture is a component of Traditional Chinese Medicine that has evolved over the last 5000 years. Although acupuncture originated in China it has now branched into the Western world and is recognized for the effective treatment that it is.
Acupuncture works on the internal energy of the body, which is called Qi. Qi flows through the body via pathways called meridians which can be likened to electricity running through wires. Qi can vary in intensity from very strong to very subtle. It is along these meridians where various acupuncture points are located. Each point has a specific affect on the body and depending on what is being treated will determine which acupuncture points are selected during a treatment.
An acupuncture treatment can also use other techniques including moxa (heat), electro-therapy and cupping. Chinese herbs are also used to maximize the treatment.
The benefits are varied, some of which include drug-free pain relief, assisting the body in disease states, treating the cause as well as the symptoms of a wide range of ailments.
Some of the conditions acupuncture is effective for include:
- Lower back pain and sciatica
- Neck and upper back pain
- Shoulder pain, including frozen shoulder
- Sporting injuries
- Headaches and migraines
- Cold, flu and sinusitis
- Stress, depression and anxiety
- Facial paralysis
- Menstrual problems, PMT and menopause
Massage therapy is not just for relaxation, although it is great for that, it is healing through the manipulation of soft tissue for therapeutic purposes.
Massage techniques have a range of benefits including –
- Increased blood flow and nutrition to muscles
- Gives greater joint flexibility and range of movement
- Relieves muscle tension, spasm, stiffness and pain
- Produces deep relaxation and stress reduction
- Relieves tension related headaches
- Helps the body to eliminate toxins
Finch therapy is a ground breaking new therapy to realign the body. It reduces aches and pains, enhances sporting performance and allows the body to move with ease.
Finch therapy is a non-invasive soft tissue therapy that promotes optimal pelvic and spinal alignment without the need for manipulation or mobilization of the joints. Tight muscles and stiff joints often return to normal within minutes of treatment.
In all modalities the number of treatments required varies from condition to condition and from person to person. The factors which will have an influence on this include the duration and intensity of the present disorder and the individual circumstances such as your personal health goals.
