Acupuncture

Two different styles of Acupuncture are offered at Head 2 Toe Health – Japanese and Chinese

The use of either style depends on the condition and the preference of the patient. The main difference that most patients immediately recognise is the very superficial needling methods of the Japanese style. This is almost painless compared to some needle techniques used in the TCM (Chinese) style, which can be somewhat ‘achey’ or ‘throbby’.

Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine filiform needles into points along the surface of the body, which form ‘energy lines’ known as meridians. These needles act to stimulate the movement of the body’s Qi (energy) and blood to restore balance throughout the meridian & organ systems. It is by this process that muscular and organ based problems can be treated through needling specific points on the skin, which often aren’t in the diseased or painful area.

The aim and style of treatment used at Head 2 Toe Health concentrates on treating the underlying problems or imbalances in the body that can cause the main complaint to occur. These underlying problems or imbalances are usually preventing the natural healing processes of the body as well. After this is addressed, we also treat the problem area directly to relieve pain or discomfort – we don’t just patch up the problem and have the patient come back week after week if it’s not a necessity in treating the underlying imbalances.

Acupuncture has been used extensively in the east for at least two thousand years to successfully treat a wide range of evolving diseases, even to the point that many hospitals in China consist of an acupuncture ward, where patients are treated with both traditional and modern medicines. TCM methods, which is the main style used in western countries today, and Japanese acupuncture techniques treat a wide range of conditions from musculo-skeletal disorders to organ based pathologies.

Below is a list of common problems which TCM & Japanese methods can assist in maintaining or rectify depending on the condition & its duration:

  • Digestive Disorders – Bloating, Reflux, Diarrhoea, Constipation etc.
  • Respiratory Disorders – Cough, Colds & Flus, Asthma, Sinusitis
  • Cardiothoracic Disorders – Palpitations, Angina Maintenance
  • Urogenital Disorders – Incontinence etc.
