Acupuncture in Windermere

Doctor doing acupunctureAcupuncture is a health practice and component of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), a complete health care system approach to addressing and preventing disease. Practiced for thousands of years, acupuncture has gained more attention as an alternative and complementary therapy in western culture, creating excellent career opportunities. In addition to acupuncture, TCM also includes Chinese herbology and diet therapy.

How Does Acupuncture Work?

Acupuncture improves the body’s functions and promotes the natural self-healing process by stimulating specific anatomic sites—commonly referred to as acupuncture points, or acupoints. The most common method used to stimulate acupoints is the insertion of fine, sterile needles into the skin. Pressure, heat, or electrical stimulation may further enhance the effects.

The Benefits of Acupuncture

The most commonly known and studied effect of acupuncture is the relief or reduction of short-term and long-term pain. Acupuncture also helps local circulation, tissue oxygenation, and cellular regeneration to promote the natural healing aspects of our bodies.
