What is Acupuncture?

Derived from traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture has proven an effective means of treating modern day health problems. Chinese practitioners of yore believed that everything is given life by the movements and changes of an energy force known as Qi.


Doctor uses needles for treatment of the patient

A deficiency of this force will lead to pain or illness, so they believed. When Qi is allowed to flow, the body is restored to full health.

Acupuncture is primarily aimed at restoring the flow of Qi so as to re-establish the natural balance of the body.

In truth, acupuncture releases pain-relieving hormones, which have been proven effective in dealing with muscle spasms.

These hormones are also known to bring about relaxation, so an acupuncture session when you’re stressed is a good idea.

What happens when you have acupuncture at our Stockport clinic?

 When you visit our Stockport clinic for your acupuncture session, your session will last an hour or maybe slightly less.

Small, fine needles will first be inserted into your skin at designated points on your body.

The fineness of the needle ensures that the pain you feel during treatment is minimal to non-existent. And apart from a bit of soreness immediately after the treatment, you will not need to bear any side effects.

After between 8 and 10 sessions you will feel as good as new. Among the ailments acupuncture can address are:

  • Neck pain
  • Back pain, headaches and migraines
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Arthritis and tendonitis
