Acupuncture and emotions

In the tradition of Chinese Medicine, a physical complaint corresponds to a certain internal organ (Liver, Spleen, Lung, Kidney). Because Chinese medicine looks at dynamics and patterns in the body, these patterns are used to analyse why certain emotional states occur. For example: digestive issues and the tendency to ruminate or over think. Do you find yourself excessively or obsessively worrying? This is known in Chinese medicine to be related to your digestive health. Do you also notice a change in your bowel habits, chronic diarrhea or constipation when you are anxious, stressed or obsessing about issues in your life?

Non-needle therapies

In addition to treatments using acupuncture needles, other forms of non-needle therapies are also used. These methods do not involve acupuncture needles and are an option for those who prefer gentle non-needle treatments. These include: external heat therapies with moxibustion, Tui-Na (Chinese massage), magnet therapy, gua-sha (skin scraping technique) and cupping.
