What is traditional acupuncture?

In its’ simplest form, traditional acupuncture is the insertion of fine needles into the body to encourage healing. There are, however, a great many other aspects that contribute to an acupuncture treatment.

For instance:

  • Listening to your needs
  • Taking time to understand   
  • Building trust and rapport 
  • Suggesting lifestyle improvements
  • Making time to rest 
  • Sharing concerns and worries 
  • Creating a positive approach to your health   
  • And finally, having fun!

As well as needles we may also use massage, heat treatment and exercises in your session.

In a nutshell, acupuncture is about using a host of ancient and modern methods to help you  feel good.’ 

In many cases it’s an adventure and I invite you to see how it may improve your life.

How can acupuncture help?

Traditional acupuncture is an adaptable medicine that can help you achieve your true potential in a natural, drug free, safe and supportive environment.

Often used for pain relief, however, it is not limited to purely physical issues. In addition, the calming qualities of acupuncture also offer relief to emotional and stress based ailments. Patients often talk of feeling more in-touch with themselves or peaceful after treatments.

The British Acupuncture Council has compiled fact sheets of medical conditions with an outline of any research that has been conducted into the effectiveness of acupuncture treatment.  These documents aim to offer unbiased information from a wide spectrum of research studies.  I do not provide lists of illnesses or symptoms on this site for two key reasons; firstly, strict codes of advertising conduct prevent this and secondly, Five Element acupuncture treatment recognises we are much more than a series of symptoms.

About Alex

I have been practicing acupuncture for over eight years, originally training at the College of Traditional Acupuncture in Warwick.  I qualified with a Bachelor of Arts Honours degree (B.A. Hons) in Traditional Acupuncture from Oxford Brookes University. My other qualifications also include a BSc degree in Biology, plus a Masters degree in Environmental Sustainability.  As a fully insured member of the British Acupuncture Council (MBAcC) and registered with City of York and Harrogate Borough Councils you are guaranteed the utmost professionalism and safety.

Acupuncture crept up on me out of the blue!

I had never had an acupuncture treatment before beginning my training.

There is no miracle story how ‘acupuncture healed me’ and inspired me to change my career.  It was clear to me that I was nearing the end of my career within local government. I was working on exciting and innovative projects, but job promotions were taking me away from what I loved most, working directly with people and seeing them flourish.  So I decided to make a change.  As it turns out, a pretty huge one.

Whilst searching around for a new vocation I attended an open day at a small acupuncture college in Warwick.  Knowing nothing of traditional acupuncture, apart from a few clips I’d seen on the TV, I sat and listened to the guy leading the open day and it blew my brain. It had everything I was seeking.  I could be self employed, continue to work directly with people needing help and, furthermore, incorporate the knowledge from my previous life as a biologist.

Acupuncture has taught me more than I could have possibly realised; it is so much more than just the needles.  It has taught me how to live a more fulfilling life, whilst having a huge amount of fun with the people I meet.
