What is multi-bed acupuncture?
The Anahata Health Clinic offers, in addition to one to one treatment, Multi-bed acupuncture in a similar way to the Chinese, with many treatment couches in one big room, allowing efficiency and a community atmosphere and a cheaper treatment option.
Acupuncture is a very powerful healing system which has been in use for thousands of years. A qualified Acupuncturist can help many more conditions than simple pain relief including: headache, arthritis, muscle spasm, hormonal issues, IBS, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, overall constitutional issues, psychiatric conditions, etc.
Indeed a good acupuncturist has a very different frame of reference to the western medical approach, which often sees disease as an enemy to be fought off. Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture seek to bring the body with all its physical and energetic processes into harmony with itself, balancing the yin with the yang.
Most people who experience ‘real’ acupuncture for the first time feel great wellbeing, as a result of their whole system coming into a better internal balance.
Acupuncture works well in conjunction with many different complementary therapies including: osteopathy, herbal medicine and massage, which are also available at Anahata Clinic.
What to expect from an acupuncture treatment
Acupuncturists work to establish the cause, nature and location of an individual’s imbalance, and the most effective way to treat it. This is commonly done by the insertion of fine needles into particular areas of the body, known as acupuncture points. These points lie on channels (or meridians), which circulate Qi throughout the body. By fine tuning the Qi in the channels, acupuncturists aim to achieve balance, health and harmony of each individual.
Treatment also often consists of other techniques in place of, or in conjunction with, the needles, where deemed appropriate. These techniques include massage, acupressure, moxibustion (the use of a burning herb around areas of the body to create warmth and energy), cupping (suction cups that draw out toxins or pathogenic factors) and advice (usually surrounding the likely causes of the imbalance and possible ways of addressing these).
All our acupuncturists are fully trained, qualified, and registered with the British Acupuncture Council.
