27 Mar Acupuncture at Clarity with Caro Power
Welcome, Caro Power!
Today Dr Power, who has been working with animals for over 17 years (you can read more about that here) offers us a very brief intro into Acupuncture and shares some of the ailments she may help with:
What is Acupuncture?
Chinese medicine works in a holistic way to restore balance in the body. Any disease or disorder is caused by some sort of imbalance, so the theory is to treat the underlying cause, rather than just the symptoms. From a Chinese Medicine perspective, it works to restore free flow of Qi (life energy) and balance yin and yang.
From a western medicine perspective, it works in restoring blood flow to restricted areas and reprogramming neural pathways to both brain and organs to restore function.
I utilise acupuncture, cupping, moxibustion (heating of acupuncture points), food therapy, exercises (qi gong), tuina (chinese massage techniques) and herbal supplements to treat patients, depending on their presenting complaint.
