What is Acupuncture and how can it help me?
Acupuncture originated in China over two thousand years ago. Since then it has developed and integrated into other systems of health care. In the UK, acupuncture is well respected as a treatment for many conditions and works well alongside conventional western health care.
In recent years, acupuncture has performed well in western medical trials and is now commonly recommended by doctors for a variety of conditions. In addition, many patients consult Ally for treatment in order to maintain their health, or to enhance their feelings of wellbeing.
Acupuncture involves using fine sterile needles to stimulate points on the body. Treatments can be directed toward a specific physical issues, but more commonly will address the overall health of the patient, working to make each person more relaxed and balanced, restoring calm and assisting recovery through a fully holistic approach. Traditional acupuncture acknowledges the mind and body are intrinsically linked, and works to the benefit of both. This makes acupuncture a very useful treatment to combat stress.
