As a London acupuncturist, we often see clients who come to us as a last resort. It’s the last resort because they have previously tried other approaches to treat their complex and multiple conditions with little or no success.
According to one study, the number of people with multiple health concerns is growing, with 1 in 3 of those admitted to hospital as an emergency having 5+ more conditions.
A complex condition is defined as a long-lasting health issue that significantly impacts a person’s quality of life.
Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine based on the body’s energy flow through 14 meridians or pathways. These are called “qi” (pronounced “chee”). As London acupuncturists, we believe that when qi does not flow through the body, it can cause a person to feel unwell. Acupuncture releases qi and can help to relieve pain and restore good health.
Clinics and doctors worldwide use acupuncture to treat patients suffering from symptoms and outcomes of complex conditions. However, sometimes patients experience multiple conditions and are frustrated that they cannot find relief.
Acupuncture can help patients with complex conditions to relieve pain and discomfort. Acupuncture points send messages to our central nervous system under the skin and in our muscles. As a result, our body produces and releases feel-good endorphins.
We use thin, sterile and disposable needles into points along the body’s meridians to alter energy flow.
Treating Pain and Complex Conditions
One of the most frequent reasons patients come to us is to help them manage regular and sometimes constant pain due to a chronic and complex condition.
This includes migraines, back, hip, knee, neck and shoulder pain and tension headaches. In addition, the World Health Organisation recommends acupuncture for a wide-ranging list of 100+ conditions, some of which can be chronic conditions. These include:
- Postoperative pain
- Adverse reaction to radiotherapy and chemotherapy
- Cancer pain
We come across other types of pain as an acupuncturist clinic in London, including alignment issues, accident trauma, and repetitive strain injury (RSI).
We offer patients relief from suffering in a supportive environment that treats the whole person, not just the symptom.
