Acupuncture is a wonderful natural system of medicine that restores and maintains our health. Treatment works by activating a person’s own recuperative and healing powers. Over 2000 years the practice was already well established as part of the repertoire of Chinese Medicine. Traditionally, this ancient practice is seen to work with the “Qi” (pronounced “chee”), or vital energy of the body. This energy ﬂows continuously through the meridian system, an energetic network linking speciﬁc points which in turn inﬂuence our health and well-being in all its aspects.
Acupuncture can be used both to maintain health and to beneﬁt a huge range of issues such as back ache, muscular injuries and strains, insomnia, migraine, arthritis and IBS to name just a few. Hormonal problems such as PMT, an irregular cycle or menopausal symptoms can be addressed.
Expectant mums can expect beneﬁts throughout their pregnancies, keeping them strong and working with any issues such as morning sickness. It can be used to prepare for and during labour. The therapy can be used for aiding fertility naturally and alongside IVF. It is brilliant for children of any age too! Do check it out to help with such problems as those persistent colds and infections, infant colic, earache, tummy upsets or eczema. Not that you have to be ill…. seasonal preventative treatments are a great way to keep you and your children healthy.
We are healthy when the ﬂow of “Qi” or vitality is clear and strong in our being. Dis-harmony and dis-ease arise when this energy ﬂow is blocked or depleted. Appropriate choice and treatment of acupuncture points along the meridians works to re-establish and maintain the energy ﬂow and restore the natural balance of body and mind.
Points can be treated by the shallow insertion of hair ﬁne needles or the use of acupressure. The therapy is suitable for any age from newborn upwards. It is amazingly relaxing as it helps release our blocks and stresses. It has a detailed diagnostic system and can also be used preventatively, correcting imbalances in their early stages.
Having been an acupuncturist for over 30 years now, our Acupuncturist Sue Kalicinska just loves this truly holistic approach to health. She ﬁnds it is great to be able to treat the whole person rather than just the disease and to work with the cause of the problem as well as the symptoms. And with no unwanted side effects!

It is important to realise that Acupuncture is a holistic medicine, treating the whole person rather than the disease and attempts to work with the cause of the problem as well as the symptoms.
Thus, dietary advice, for example, may play a part in the treatment.
Acupuncture has a detailed diagnostic system and can thus be used as a preventative medicine, correcting imbalances in their early stages.
Acupuncture is suitable for all ages and during pregnancy. Babies and young children only need very short treatment times and acupressure can also be used.
Sue has been in practice since 1987 and founded her first Centre in 1990, she is available for appointments at Seale Natural Health on Mondays.
