Acupuncture for Fertility and Pregnancy
From pre-conception through to the post-natal period, acupuncture can help to enhance fertility, relieve distressing pregnancy symptoms and assist in the management of post-partum depression.
Fertility issues are addressed by increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs while balancing the endocrine system. It also works to regulate the menstrual cycle and enhance the follicular development in order to improve egg quality. In men acupuncture may help to enhance the sperm count while supporting greater sperm motility.
The use of this ancient Chinese technique can also be used in the prevention of miscarriage, by reducing contractions of the uterus and to alleviate both bleeding and spotting. Acupuncture is also very efficacious in the relief of heartburn, nausea, haemorrhoids and constipation
Chronic Pain Conditions
Do you suffer from acute or chronic pain? From sports injuries such as plantar fasciitis and tennis elbow through to head, neck, hip and lower back pain – the team at Acupuncture and Wellness have a condition specific healing therapy to restore movement and relieve discomfort and pain.
Traditional Chinese medicine increases blood circulation which in turn decreases inflammation, this method of pain and stress relief is a crucial component of any pain management programme and is particularly effective for those with fibromyalgia and other chronic conditions.
A favoured treatment for lower back pain, carpel tunnel syndrome through to debilitating migraines, sinus pain and even post-surgical pain, our learned practitioners will customise your treatment choosing from acupuncture, acupressure, Chinese herbal remedies, moxibustion and nutritional guidance to minimise pain and restore your “qi” (vital air).
Anxiety and Mood Disorders
The low side effect profile associated with traditional Chinese medicine including acupuncture makes it an efficacious choice as both a complementary and first line therapy in the treatment of anxiety and depressive disorders.
The use of acupuncture stimulates the nervous system and acts on areas of the brain known to reduce sensitivity to pain and stress, effectively “deactivating” the analytical brain which contributes to the anxious and depressive state.
Acupuncture actively regulates neurotransmitters and hormones such as serotonin, noradrenaline and dopamine helping to combat negative affective states, treating mood disorders such as chronic anxiety associated with post-traumatic stress disorder, eating disorders, mild to moderate depression and post-partum depression. At AWS our intuitive practitioners will help you navigate your way back to a healthy, inspired way of thinking.
Did you know that those who suffer with chronic allergies often show signs of spleen or kidney deficiency, in some instances even lung problems? As western medicine continues to prescribe over the counter anti-histamines and decongestants, the practice of traditional Chinese medicine views allergy as the manifestation of wind invading the upper body.
Customising herbal formulas and adjusting diet in complement with an acupuncture programme can treat acute symptoms and address underlying immune system imbalances without undesirable side effects or immune system suppression.
At AWC we treat and manage, environmental allergy and allergic rhinitis which signals a compromised immune system. Both allergy and allergic rhinitis produce symptoms such as sinus congestion, hives, skin rashes, watery eyes and a sore throat.
