Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine filiform needles into points along the surface of the body, which form ‘energy lines’ known as meridians. These needles act to stimulate the movement of the bodys’ Qi (energy) and Blood to restore balance throughout the meridian & organ systems. It is by this process that Muscular & Organ based problems can be treated through needling specific points on the skin, which often aren’t in the diseased or painful area.
The aim and style of treatment used at BMBS concentrates on treating the underlying problems or imbalances in the body that can cause the main complaint to occur. These underlying problems or imbalances are usually preventing the natural healing processes of the body as well. After this is addressed, we also treat the problem area directly to asssit in the relief pain or discomfort – we don’t just patch up the problem and have the patient come back week after week if it’s not a necessity in treating the underlying imbalances.
