Acu_tuina | Islington N1Clinic Central, 10-12 Gaskin St, Angel
Acupuncture and Chinese bodywork in the heart of Islington For effective, long-term relief from pain, muscular-skeletel problems and emotional issues such as: migraine back and neck pain frozen shoulder sports injuries stress IBS poor sleep low energy… and more please call for more information. ACUPUNCTURE Depending on your ailment the amount of needles used can vary from just four to thirty in one session - more needles doesn''t necessarily mean a better or stronger treatment. You may be lying either on your front, your back or your side for your treatment; again this depends on your diagnosis. In acupuncture we look to stimulate points on specific lines that run the course of the body, connecting the lower and upper body, front and back; exterior body with interior. These lines are called channels or meridians and contain about 300 specific acupuncture points. I may use points that are in the local problem area plus ones that are further away on the arms and legs that have a connection to that area. For instance if you are suffering from lower back pain I will use points behind the knees and near the ankles that historically and experientially have a positive effect on pain in that region. I may also use points on the lower abdomen that reflect through to the lower back. If you lower back problem is causing you particular emotional stress then I may needle points on near your wrists that help calm the mind and soothe fraught emotions. Acupuncture is safe - I follow the strict health, safety and conduct codes specified by the British Acupuncture Council. TUI NA As part of an ongoing process, Tui Na has been practiced and refined over a period of approximately 2000 years. Tui Na uses a wide variety of massage techniques many of which it shares with other oriental physical therapies such as ''acupressure'' and ''shiatsu''. These include: limb rotations and stretches; rhythmic rocking motions and percussion. Traditionally, the treatment is performed over a soft sheet that covers the patient providing warmth, protecting modesty and creating a smooth surface on which to work. Occasionally, clothing may be removed or repositioned for the application of herbal liniments and ancillary techniques such as cupping, guasha and moxabustion. Tui Na also combines very well with acupuncture. Tui Na is a holistic massage, it''s techniques are readily adaptable to suit the needs of the patient and their specific symptoms. For instance some techniques can be performed in a very relaxed gentle manner in order to help calm the mind (such as anxiety and insomnia), prepare the body for deep tissue work or provide an energy boost; whilst other techniques can be performed vigorously to break down stagnated, knotted areas of musculature or invigorate sluggish energy and promote blood flow.
