Acupuncture Treatments in Glasgow

Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points in the body. The needles are single use and pre
sterilised and disposed of safely. Needles may be placed around an area of pain but they may also be placed all around the
body, from the hands to the feet. The needles are inserted very quickly and once remove are safely disposed of.
Acupuncture can be used on its own or in combination with other treatment such as cupping, moxa and massage.
Treatment is carried out on the skin, adults and children can be treated and it is safe to have during pregnancy.

they body to promote the flow of Qi and Blood in the channels.

Cupping

This treatment involves glass cups
being placed on the skin, a vacuum is created inside the cup and this
causes the skin to draw up inside the cup. This technique is used to move stagnation or blockages in the
channels. It is a very strong
treatment and can leave bruises
on the skin.

Auricular acupuncture

The ear has many acupuncture
points that can be used to treat a
variety of conditions. This treatment
can be very effective in addictions
such as smoking. In some cases
small pellets will be used with or
instead of the needles, these are
stuck on to the skin around the ear
lobe and can be left in place for
a few days.

Tui Na Massage

Tui Na (push-grasp) is a form of
oriental massage that has been
practised in China for thousands of years. It is a hands on treatment
using the same principles as Acupuncture. Techniques such as grasping, rolling, kneading, traction
and pressure are used to remove blockages along the channels
(meridians) of the body to stimulate
the flow of Qi and blood
to promote healing.

It is a very physical treatment, not
usually used for relaxation. Tui Na
can be very effective for a variety of problems including musculoskeletal
pain, fertility issues, digestive
problems and stress related
conditions. Treatment is carried out
on the skin, adults and children can
be treated. In some cases liniments, compresses or plasters may
also be used.

Moxabustion (Moxa)

This technique involves a dried herb called Mugwort that can be burned
to give heat. The moxa can be
burned on the end of the needles, or held close to a point.

Electro-acupuncture

In some conditions a small current of electricity may be passed through
the needles in order to give a slightly stronger treatment.
