No Needle Acupuncture & Auriculotherapy
Low Light Therapy Acupuncture and Microcurrent Acupuncture or No Needle Acupuncture
Low Light Therapy Acupuncture and Microcurrent Acupuncture is often described as a bit like TENS therapy but using a tiny, tiny electrical current. Low Light Therapy Acupuncture and Microcurrent Acupuncture, and Ear Seed Therapy treatments are perfect in situations where needle acupuncture may not be suitable:
Acupuncture and no needle acupuncture both stimulate the nerves in skin and muscle and can produce a variety of effects. We know that it increases the body's release of natural painkillers - endorphin and serotonin - in the pain pathways of both the spinal cord and the brain. This modifies the way pain signals are received.
But acupuncture does much more than reduce pain and has a beneficial effect on health. Patients often notice an improved sense of well-being after treatment.
Modern research shows that acupuncture treatments can affect most of the body's systems - the nervous system, muscle tone, hormone outputs, circulation, antibody production and allergic responses, as well as the respiratory, digestive, urinary and reproductive systems. I've written a short blog post if you'd like to learn more about laser acupuncture. You'll find it here.
Prior to your treatment a full assessment will be carried out and treatment will be tailored to your specific needs; so it is impossible to give more than a general idea of what treatment might involve.
Auricular Acupuncture/Auriculotherapy - Low Light, Microcurrent and Ear Seed Therapy
Auriculotherapy is a specialised form of acupuncture that is commonly used to treat and help alleviate symptoms associated with stress, pain and addictions - for example drug and alcohol addiction. Based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine and also incorporating elements of Western Auriculotherapy, the treatment has also been used to successfully help with the detoxification process, helping reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms such as depression, insomnia, agitation and anxiety and promote deep relaxation.
As well as helping with stress, detox and addictions Auriculotherapy is a powerfully effective therapy that can help most general health conditions as well as musculoskeletal pain. Small magnets and/or seeds are also used which are worn between treatments to support the healing process. The treatment is easy, quick and effective - very often dramatic results are achieved in just one treatment session, and free from side effects! Your treatment may also involve specific dietary advice based on Traditional Chinese Medicine which will further support and encourage the healing process.
Here are some of the ways this treatment can help:
Auriculotherapy can be a very effective and powerful therapy and I have seen amazing results being achieved - even with chronic conditions - in relatively short time periods - often in just one session. As well as helping with stress, pain and addictions, auricular acupuncture can also help support those wanting to stop smoking and lose weight.
How many sessions will you need?
The number of sessions required depends on the condition being treated. Long term or chronic conditions may require weekly or twice weekly treatments, then at longer intervals as the condition responds. Treatment sessions last between 30 minutes -1 hour. A typical course of treatment lasts 5 to 8 sessions.

"After the first session... I realised that something had shifted, my attitude had changed, work colleagues had commented on my calmer nature... after a few sessions I realised that I had achieved my goal, after a particularly challenging few weeks at work and with a family crisis I realised I had handled the whole episode with ease and confidence."
