What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese method of treating disease. Treatment at Islington's Angel Acupuncture Clinic consists of inserting extremely fine needles and applying heat or electrical stimulation at acupuncture points. This encourages the body’s own natural healing response and promotes the pateient’s physical and mental wellbeing.
Acupuncture treatment triggers the body’s immune system to deal with any sort of disease. It aims to restore the body’s natural balance by enhancing the circulation of blood and Qi (life force, energy) in the body.
Acupuncture at the Angel Acupuncture Clinic in Islington is safe and very effective during pregnancy and when breastfeeding. It is particularly useful for the stresses of labour and in the preparation of labour to help promote as natural a childbirth as possible.
There is very good evidence that acupuncture can help with couples to conceive naturally in cases of infertility whether male or female by releiving stress.
How does acupuncture work?
The classical Chinese explanation is that the body is criss-crossed by channels carrying energy, nutrients and fluids that nourish and irrigate the tissues. Any obstruction to the flow of these channels causes deficiency in some part of the body and excess in another. Through stimulation of acupuncture points this imbalance can be corrected.
Acupuncture at the Angel Acupuncture Clinic in Islington works alongside conventional medicine and supplements rather than replaces the medical care by your doctor and addresses the whole patient rather than the isolated symptoms.
