What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an integral part of the system of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and has been practiced in China for around 2000 years.

It is based on the concept of balancing the body’s innate energy (Qi) to restore equilibrium and a sense of well being. Qi can become blocked or imbalanced for a number of reasons ranging from stress, physical trauma, illness, poor diet or through emotional upset. You may choose to have acupuncture for relaxation, as a general pick me up during times of stress or to boost your immune system during the winter months or before going on holiday.

It can also treat a wide range of conditions including:

  • Musculo-skeletal conditions and sports injuries
  • Psychological conditions
  • Digestion
  • Respiratory
  • Skin conditions
  • Women’s problems – Menstrual and Menopausal
  • Mens problems
  • Urinary conditions
  • Tiredness
  • Ears and eyes

What does treatment involve?

Following a detailed consultation which includes tongue and pulse diagnosis, fine sterile needles are inserted into carefully selected acupuncture points to free up the flow of Qi. These points may be on the front or back of the body and your therapist will advise you in advance of which areas they will be treating to prepare you accordingly. After your treatment, your therapist will discuss a treatment plan giving you aftercare advice to follow at home.

Does it hurt?

The needles used in acupuncture are very fine. There is often a feeling of tingling or a mild ache when needles are inserted and some points may feel more active than others. With any acupuncture treatment, there is always the possibility of bruising to the skin which will reduce naturally over time.

Which type of acupuncture do you do?

There are several types of acupuncture practiced in the UK. This can be very confusing when trying to decide where you should go for treatment. The style of Acupuncture practiced by Steve Mason is Traditional Chinese Acupuncture which produces powerful effects. Both Steve Mason and Nathalie Mineau also offers Acupuncture specifically for Sports Injuries
