I'm asked a lot of the time while treating clients, does acupuncture work for e.g. hay fever, while I'm treating them for e.g. shoulder pain, and yes it does very effectively!
Acupuncture treats countless pains and conditions.
I remember being blown away by its amazing healing abilities when I started my internship in Nanjing, China. I worked on the neurological ward where Dr Ooyang treated many inpatients and outpatients suffering the effects of strokes, serious traumas and chronic pain manifesting in symptoms such as; hemiplegia, paralysis, sciatica, aphasia, and witnessed over time great improvements especially with the accompaniment of electroacupuncture and a heat lamp (we all love the heat lamp!)
I also saw its cosmetic effects at another hospital eliminating wrinkles, puffy eyes, dark circles under the eyes and freckles (yes freckles!).
In a lot of these ginormous hospitals in China - Western Medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is practiced in tandem effectively and efficiently. These hospital pharmacies consist of a Western pharmaceutical section and herbal pharmacy section which was needless to say intriguing.
So what do I treat? Well whatever comes in the door - headaches, migraine, sinusitis, arthritis, shoulder pain, back pain, insomnia, anxiety, depression, fatigue, trigeminal neuralgia, IBS, bloating, constipation, diarrhoea, painful periods, irregular periods, PMT, fertility, menopausal symptoms, pregnancy pains, autoimmune conditions, facial rejuvenation, yes really, take a look - www.shenglowacupuncture.ie/facial-rejuvenation , to name but a few.
But you don't have to be experiencing any of the above as you can simply opt for a deep, relaxing session which will leave you super chilled and renewed.
