Acupuncture im Lanserhof at The Arts Club in London
Acupuncture is part of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and has established itself in Europe as a complementary natural therapy to classic Western medicine. In our practice in London, acupuncture is used as an alone standing treatment method or in addition to Western therapies. We use various acupuncture styles or acupuncture microsystems depending on the symptoms and the course of treatment. Thus, we offer therapy targeted to the individual’s needs, which guarantees the best possible treatment results.
Acupuncture as Part of Chinese Alternative Medicine
Acupuncture is based on the understanding of TCM that the life energy Qi flows through the human body and that all organs are related to each other – they are divided into yin and yang. This means that each organ has a partner organ that influences its functions and activity. Is there a dis-harmony, acupuncture can restore the equilibrium within the body, preventing ailment and reducing pain. According to traditional Chinese medicine, the malfunction of organs causes imbalances in the body that also lead to weight gain. Thus, acupuncture targets specific areas to reverse this process and stimulate weight loss.
Facial Acupuncture in Dermatology
Acupuncture does not only promote your overall health, but is also used for beauty treatments in dermatology. Those treatments can help the skin look healthier, smoother and younger, which is why it is a gentle alternative to surgery or Botox. The thin needles puncture the skin, setting off its repair mode and stimulating the lymphatic and circulatory system as well as the production of collagen. This helps improve the skin’s elasticity and can minimise fine lines and wrinkles.
Acupuncture for Back Pain and Muscle Tensions
Back pain is a common chronic pain and it is often caused by trigger points which are located across the body. In our practice in London, we target these trigger points with acupuncture in order to relieve chronically cramped and/or inflamed muscles. Acupuncture stimulates the muscles, improves the blood circulation and relieves back pain. Acupuncture is also used to treat other muscular discomforts.
