What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture at Energia Vital in Congleton, Cheshire.

ACUPUNCTURE is one of the techniques of the Traditional Chinese Medicine health system, which is used to re-establish the balanced flow of the Vital Energy (Qi or Chi) that runs throughout the energy channels (meridians) of our body. Unbalances in the circulation of this energy can disrupt its flow and cause illness or weaknesses in our body.

Acupuncturists utilise fine and sterile needles (or other tools) to stimulate acupuncture points on the skin and relieve pain and psychosomatic symptoms and re-establish health and well-being.

Acupuncture treats the person as a whole, so you can benefit from its treatments even if you are not actually ill. Acupuncture is frequently mentioned for its use to treat pain, but it is not only useful that way, helping to achieve energetic balance it will work as a preventive therapy.

Classic Chinese Acupuncture is based on the concept of Yin and Yang and the Five Elements (or Five Movements).  An acupuncturist can intervene to help  the recovery of lost balance between Yin and Yang and constitutional elements, therefore recovering your health and well-being for body, mind and soul.

Acupuncture treatment can be used to help relax body, mind and soul. During the session a relaxation technique can be used to help achieve that and recover from daily life stress.

Treatments may take longer to achieve success, depending on the duration of your complaints, that is, recent problems may see quicker improvement than long lasting problems that may need more sessions to improve. Considering the development of diseases, it can be seen in three levels:

The first is more superficial and sometimes without important physical symptoms as it is made up of energetic syndromes that can be easily treated by acupuncture, thus re-establishing the equilibrium.

The second level presents when physical symptoms appear as organic functional disturbances, the action of acupuncture is still effective as healing tool since the energetic balance is reached after a number of sessions.

On a third level the imbalance on the energy is deeper, some tissues may have been damaged by long term processes, then, the acupuncture treatment can work as a supportive technique to a more conventional treatment.

EAR ACUPUNCTURE is also known as Auricular Acupuncture

It is a therapy that uses needles, small seeds, small magnets, electric stimulus and small round crystals applied to reflex points of the ear.

I offer Ear Acupuncture together with systemic (body) acupuncture, but also as stand alone.

I use ear acupuncture to speed up the results of certain Acupuncture treatments and I frequently use it when treating patients suffering from chronic pain, simultaneously with body acupuncture treatment.

Since 2009 I also use specially prepared crystals, called radionic crystals that have been developed by Raul Breves, Brazilian acupuncturist, writer and researcher of the application of Radionics in energy medicine. These crystals are specially designed to help relieve deep seated emotional issues and have been used in Brazil with tremendous success.
