Acupuncture is an ancient form of healing developed in China over many hundreds of years. It works towards restoring vitality when our intrinsic healing energies have been depleted. It often enhances general well-being and enjoyment of life. It can help you to cope better if you are feeling off-colour or out of sorts, perhaps experiencing difficulties at work or unhappiness in a relationship. Acupuncture can address levels of distress which are mental/emotional, as well as physical.
Acupuncture uses fine needles and moxa, a slow-burning herb, to balance the energy which continuously sustains us on every level. This energy can become blocked or congested, causing symptoms.
In the modern world, some people are overburdened and stressed, due to the challenge of balancing many competing demands, and we believe that acupuncture has a great deal to offer in this area. It can revive drooping spirits and give people the strength to carry on.
Conditions that can be helped by acupuncture include stress, anxiety and depression, headaches, digestive problems, insomnia, fatigue, gynaecological problems, aches and pains.
We are delighted that Sinsook Park is joining the Sunflower Centre this summer!
We are also hosting a final year acupuncture student under supervision.
