Ancient and Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture
Balancing Yin and Yang
You can expect safe, effective, compassionate and confidential care from fully qualified master practitioner Lydia Edwards.
Acupuncture works on the philosophy that the human body has energy channels that are most commonly known as meridians. Energy, known as qi (pronounced chi), should flow freely through these channels but if the qi becomes deficient or blocked, we can suffer from unpleasant symptoms and become unhealthy.
Acupuncture can help with muscular skeletal (e.g. back) issues, emotional imbalance (e.g. stress, anxiety, depression), male health or gynaecological issues, weight loss, stopping smoking, chronic conditions (e.g. fibromyalgia), headaches, migraines, improving fertility, tinnitus and many other conditions.
Traditional Chinese Medicine Cupping Therapy
Withdraw Pathogenic factors from the body
Cupping as a therapeutic medium is simple, safe and at the same time quite an effective treatment tool, and can be added onto a Tui Na massage or Acupuncture appointment or indeed as a stand alone appointment.
