Niki Oates - Acupuncturist
Traditional Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs
This system of medicine has been used in China for over 3000 years and is now recognised as effective by most people in the west. The practitioner takes into account not only symptoms, but also the lifestyle and general health of the patient. Very fine sterilised needles are used to stimulate the Qi – this is the life force running through energy pathways in the body. This allows the whole system to be restored to balance and optimum health. Although often seen as a means of pain relief, it is in fact used to treat people with a wide range of conditions, both acute and chronic.
: This safe and effective form of medicine has developed in China over thousands of years, and is used there alongside acupuncture, exercise, dietary therapy and Western medicine. Chinese herbs can help most conditions, although they are best known in the UK in the treatment of skin problems. People of all ages can benefit from herbal treatment, including children, as prescriptions can be tailored to individual needs as powders, pills, teas or tinctures. Dosages are also personalised so side effects are rare.
Niki is available at Alliance Therapy every Thursday morning.
