Acupuncture at Twickenham Acupuncture Clinic
Acupuncture is an ancient Asian medicinal practice, carried out by the insertion of fine needles into specific energy points on the body. This is often done to relieve pain and stress by improving the body's energy flow, and the process can improve a wide range of chronic and mild health conditions. Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years, but only in recent history has it gained popularity in the western world.
The Twickenham Acupuncture Clinic offers a range of treatments, including acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, moxa and cupping. Under the guidance of Dr (TCM) Attilio D'Alberto, you will be issued a personal treatment plan to help you achieve your health and wellness goals as part of a holistic treatment process.
Acupuncture involves locating thin needles into the muscles at specific points on the body. The aim of this process is to regulate the flow of energy in the body by removing blockages. Acupuncture may sound scary, but the needles are so fine they can barely be felt. Many patients say they find it extremely relaxing. During your consultation, you can ask any questions and Dr (TCM) D'Alberto will soon put you at ease.
Acupuncture can be recommended for a host of different conditions, instead of or alongside medical or surgical treatments. Most commonly, it is used to treat physical pain and emotional distress, and to regulate the body. Patients often choose acupuncture to tackle anxiety and stress, to target specific pain sites, or to aid fertility.
The procedure can give effective relief from symptoms quickly. Patients often find that chronic health conditions are eased by acupuncture because their stress levels decrease, their mood lifts and their body's hormones start to regulate better. Relieving energy blocks in the body can also improve the physical symptoms of a long-term health condition, such as by relieving fatigue or increasing mobility.
