Acupuncture in Barnet

Traditional Chinese medicine has been practised for more than three thousand years in China. Many people in China prefer to use ‘natural’ ways of healing rather than pharmaceutical drugs or surgery. Generations and families are relying on it to maintain their health and cure illness.

People who follow traditional Chinese medicine believe our body contains an invisible live energy force called “Qi”. When your energy is full and well you feel healthy. When something blocks the flow, like back pain, you feel ill.

Depending on your illness condition, we may use Chinese medicine powder or tablets for your treatment. Chinese medicine powder is a concentrated granular formulation. It is made by processing good quality natural Chinese herbs at high temperatures in order to get the most from the ingredients. It is innocuous and has no side effects. Simply add hot water to the powder and drink.

Acupuncture is a popular way to relieve pain. In acupuncture, needles are put into the body where “Qi” is blocked or where the patient feels pain. The treatment is simple. Only parts of the body that are sick are treated.

Depending on your illness condition, Acupuncture treatment can take 40 to 60 minutes.

Patients experience deep relaxation during the acupuncture treatment. There is no pain. Most people experience no more than a momentary dull ache, followed by a tingling sensation. Both during and after treatment most people describe a feeling of relaxation and invigoration.

For some conditions, special medical equipment along with acupuncture can be used to achieve better results. After the treatment, special rest or care is not required. This method is really beneficial for patients. Rest assured that using acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine, we will do our best to help you heal your disease, recover and improve your general health.

Moxibustion more commonly known as moxa is the use of the herb Artemisia vulgaris (mugwort) that comes in tightly rolled sticks and is set alight and held over specific acupuncture points. It has an invigorating and warming effect and is often used in treating deficiency patterns by expelling cold and damp from the meridians.

Cupping therapy is the use of glass cups that use suction to create vacuum by causing localized pressure. The vacuum effect causes blood to accumulate in the area and aid healing. Cupping is often performed on the back; it can penetrate deep into the tissues to release harmful toxins. Cupping therapy is often used in conjunction with acupuncture treatment.
