How does acupuncture work

 acupuncture treatmentYou probably know by now that you will have many thin needles inserted into your skin. These needles can be up to 50 times thinner than a syringe needle and they are inserted into the affected area of your body.

Each of these needles is sterilised and you have the added assurance of being handled by an experienced, trained acupuncturist. An acupuncture session at our Northwich clinic usually lasts no more than 30 minutes.

After the recommended 8-10 sessions you will gain lasting relief, especially if you combine your acupuncture with other modes of treatment.

Acupuncture needles serve to stimulate nerves and muscle tissue, changing the brain’s perception of pain and bringing a relaxing effect. Ancient Oriental acupuncture was aimed at restoring the natural balance of Qi in the body as it was believed that pains were caused by obstruction to the flow of Qi, the life-giving force.

The beauty with this kind of treatment is that it leaves virtually no side effects.
