The Health Benefits of Acupuncture

What is Acupuncture?

IW Therapy is pleased to be able to offer acupuncture as one of our available treatments. But what is it? Acupuncture involved penetrating the skin with metallic needles that are then activated through gentle movements of the therapist’s hand. This is an ancient practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and modern studies have found that acupuncture is actually effective at treating a variety of conditions. But remember, it is important that you find a specialist who is qualified to perform this procedure.

Needles are sterilised before treatment in order to prevent infection.

What are the Health Benefits of Acupuncture?

National Institute of Health (NIH) studies have found that acupuncture is an effective treatment for a variety of conditions, both alone and in conjunction with conventional medical practices. It is known to help with:

· Nausea caused by general aesthetic

· Nausea caused by chemotherapy

· Dental pain

· Headaches

· Menstrual cramps

· Tennis elbow

· Osteoarthritis

· Lower back pain

· Carpal tunnel syndrome

It is important to note that studies have yet to indicate why acupuncture works in a way that is understandable to western medicine, however it is believed that the stimulation causes the body to release certain chemicals in certain areas in order to promote healing.

When completed by a registered professional at IW Therapy, acupuncture is a safe and often successful method of healing a variety of injuries.
