"Very relaxing acupuncture for bladder problem"
90%Reviewed 02 Aug 2015 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Acupuncturist Consultation
Christine was very thorough, kind and encouraging. This will be the first of possibly several sessions to treat a bladder problem, I have every confidence that ultimately it will be successful. The needles definitely don't hurt and it was all most relaxing.

Chose this clinic as it is the nearest to my home. Christine took many notes on my whole medical history and explained the treatment[s] available very well. I was very relaxed and could easily have drifted off to sleep!

Ear acupuncture, also called auricular acupuncture, involves the insertion of very fine needles into acupuncture points on the ear. It has been used for thousands of years in Traditional Chinese Medicine and is largely helpful in treating problems such as addictions, insomnia, stress, anxiety, joint pain and fertility

Massage Therapy

 
Massage

Tui na massage is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine which uses acupressure massage to promote circulation, reduce pain and discomfort in the muscles or sinews, and promote health. It can be done through clothing, if preferred. Tui na is often used alongside acupuncture. In addition, Indian Head Massage is also offered.

Holistic Health

 
Acupressure

Acupressure is related to acupuncture and it is sometimes referred to as acupuncture without needles. Key points on the surface of the body are pressed or massaged to stimulate the bodys ability to heal itself. Stimulating the points can trigger the release of endorphins, chemicals that relieve pain. Acupressure can offer many benefits to patients by increasing circulation, reducing tension and enabling the body to relax.

Traditional Chinese Medicine

 
Traditional Chinese Medicine Consultation

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) acupuncture is one of the oldest and longest surviving forms of medicine in the world. Acupuncture is a tried and tested system of complementary therapies and includes cupping and guasha. Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine sterile needles into specific points on the body. Five Element Acupuncture restores the overall balance of energy in the body; it may help you to feel better in a general way, by promoting an improved quality of well-being.

Cosmetic acupuncture may result in the reduction or erasure of fine lines and the softening of deeper ones; patients may experience a firming of the jaw and a reduction in the size of under-eye bulges.This treatment can enhance not only your physical appearance but also your overall health.
