Acupuncture is a tried and tested system of traditional medicine, which has been used in China and other eastern cultures for thousands of years to restore, promote and maintain good health. Its benefits are now widely acknowledged all over the world, and in the past decade traditional acupuncture has begun to feature more prominently in mainstream healthcare in the UK.
It is a treatment where fine needles are inserted into certain parts of the body. Dependant on your pain or condition, you will have fine needles inserted on one or many, different parts of the body. This is done in an effort for the pain to be released and relieve you of any problems. This is a therapeutic and preventative treatment, which has been tried and tested for a system of medicine. The Chinese and other Eastern cultures have been using Acupuncture to help restore, promote and maintain good health for over five thousand years.

Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body to regulate the flow of Qi, your body’s vital energy. In conjunction with needling, your practitioner may use techniques such as moxibustion, cupping and massage. They may also suggest dietary or lifestyle changes. In general, acupuncture is believed to stimulate the nervous system and cause the release of neurochemical messenger molecules. The resulting changes influence the body’s homeostatic mechanisms, thus promoting physical and emotional well-being. Stimulation of certain acupuncture points has been shown to affect areas of the brain that are known to reduce sensitivity to pain and stress, as well as promoting relaxation and deactivating the analytical brain, which is responsible for anxiety.
The needles used in Acupuncture are much finer than those used for injections and blood tests. All of our needles used at Norfolk Clinic in Norwich are of single use, which are sterile and disposed of after one use. Your Acupuncture practitioner will choose certain points of your body to place the needles. Most commonly, there are between 1 to 12 points that are typically targeted and focused on in a session. Both the amount of areas and points that are targeted in an Acupuncture session will depend upon your condition. Acupuncture sessions usually last between 20 and 40 minutes. Benefiting from this treatment can often take up to 10 or more separate sessions, but often varies dependant on the patient and condition.
Your acupuncturist will use a number of different diagnostic methods to gain a complete picture of your health and lifestyle and based on this information, they will put together a personal treatment plan just for you. The frequency and number of sessions you will need depends on your individual condition. It is not unusual to need a course of treatments, but occasionally change is felt quite quickly and only two or three may be sufficient. Some people will continue to have regular treatments to maintain good health and as a preventive measure.
