Plymouth Acupuncture

There appears to be a misconception around acupuncture and a lot of people who haven’t undergone this treatment tend to have a misguided view of what it is. Sometimes this is even the case with those who know someone who has visited a clinic that specialises in acupuncture in Plymouth, yet they still aren’t completely sure about what the procedure entails. Acupuncture is an ancient medical practice that is native to China and is still frequently used to this day. It is used to treat a multitude of health issues, by using fine needles to penetrate the skin in order to alleviate pain and nausea. It is also practiced in Europe and the USA as research has found to it be effective for pain that caused by minor conditions. Whilst many doctors would agree with this conclusion, they would still recommend medication for more serious health conditions and prescribe this to their patients to treat severe symptoms.

As acupuncture has grown in popularity in the West, it’s no surprise that there are a number of fantastic clinics in and around Plymouth. Acupunctureclientsoften report success in reducing their symptoms and those with chronic pain usually return.  In the Chinese tradition, it is a common belief that disease is caused by a disturbance in the energy that flows through the body. This energy is known as Qi. Acupuncture practitioners aim to fix this disturbance, in order to allow the Qi to continuing travelling along the meridians of the body. They do this by stimulating the acupressure, otherwise known as the acupuncture points on the body, which then releases Qi. The Western interpretation as to how the treatment works is that the nerves along neurohormonal pathways are stimulated by using the needle, and in turn this transmits messages to the brain, which then releases the beta-endorphin hormone. This hormone helps to reduce the patient’s pain and thus their wellbeing is increased. There are more theories about how acupuncture works, this is one of the more popular ones, but regardless of your personal thoughts and opinions on the matter, the results can be beneficial and help to ease pain.

Plymouth practitioners are skilled at what they do and go through extensive training before they are allowed to practice acupuncture.

When the session begins, the client will either lie down or sit and potentially remove layers of clothing depending on which areas of the body they need treating. Then the extremely fine, single-use needles are brought out and will be inserted into the skin. The depth of this insertion will either be just under the skin, or deeper if the muscle needs to be reached and the needles are left in place for up to 30 minutes. Clients find they experience little to no pain, just a slight tingling sensation.

If you are interested in experiencing this treatment,it’s advised that you double-check the practitioner’s qualifications, just to be on the safe side. They should either be registered with a national acupuncture association orbe qualified practitioner and have a medical license. Acupuncture is recommended for a number of different conditions as it has been practiced for around 2500 years, currently there is growing research to explain how it positively affects the body. Overall, there is a substantial amount of evidence for it to be medically recommended.
