ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture treatment effectively addresses discomfort associated with various conditions and is widely utilised across the NHS to manage pain and stress from various illnesses. It serves as the cornerstone of Traditional Chinese Medicine, focusing on rebalancing the body’s natural vital force, Qi, by delicately inserting ultra-fine needles into specific acupressure points on the skin. Moreover, this stimulates the release of natural painkillers and initiates purinergic signalling, promoting various bodily functions.

THE PATIENT JOURNEY

I was at end of my tether when I went to Omnia to start my series of pain relief treatment for my plantar fasciitis on my heel. Prof Wu started with acupuncture followed by relief of the swelling from my knee down. I got instant relief for about an hour. Although my swelling has reduced substantially, I do appreciate that relief of pain from plantar fasciitis can take weeks if not months. I intend to continue with the treatment and will have my next treatment later this week as I find Prof Wu an excellent therapist. I would thoroughly recommend Omnia. Staff are extremely helpful and pleasant.”

Stuart H – November 2023

“Very nice experience. Prof Wu helped me so much to relief from neck and shoulder pain with amazing Tui Na skills. Definitely recommend.”

Yi Z – September 2023

I had acupuncture treatment for a pulled muscle on my back. I received a very professional and friendly service and after one session my issue was resolved and after a couple of months I have not had any reoccurrence.”

Kevin M – August 2023

“Thanks to Omnia Lifestyle’s Acupuncture treatments, my decade-long battle with hay fever and rhinitis is over. With Dr Wu’s expertise, I no longer rely on medications or steroids. Grateful for a life without constant suffering!”

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)

Why do Acupuncturists recommend Herbs?2024-02-27T14:26:13+00:00

Herbs can be a powerful adjunct to Acupuncture therapy. They are used to strengthen, build and support the body or clear it of excess problems like a cold, fever or acute pain. To build up your internal strength, your Acupuncturist may suggest starting with herbs and then undergo Acupuncture for a better outcome.

Is Acupuncture safe for children?2024-02-22T14:15:44+00:00

Yes, it is safe for children and babies. In some cases, children respond more quickly to acupuncture than adults. If your child has an aversion to needles, the practitioner may recommend Acupressure or Tui Na Massage.

Two independent surveys published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) concluded that the risk of serious adverse injury from acupuncture is less than 1 in 10,000, significantly less than most conventional treatments. The needles used are single-use, sterile, and disposable.

How many Acupuncture sessions will I need?2024-02-22T14:16:22+00:00

Treatment frequency and the number of sessions required depend on several factors, including your constitution, mental state, the severity and duration of the health condition, lifestyle habits, and the quantity and quality of your Qi. Acupuncturists believe that health determinants are unique to each individual. Typically, some change is noticed within 5 or 6 treatments, although occasionally 1 or 2 treatments may suffice. Chronic conditions typically require more time to resolve than acute ones.

Should my doctor know?2024-02-22T14:17:31+00:00

If you have been prescribed medication, we recommend that you let your GP know that you are considering acupuncture therapy. You should continue your regular medication. During the initial consultation, your acupuncturist will advise you of any contraindications, such as metal allergy, haemophilia, or if you take strong anti-coagulant medication. You may also be referred to your GP if the acupuncturist treating you recognizes any risks during your consultation or even after treatment.

What does the treatment feel like?2024-02-22T14:18:26+00:00

Many people avoid acupuncture because they think needles will hurt. Acupuncture needles are very small in diameter, approximately twice as large as the average diameter of human hair and 10 times smaller than the average diameter of a standard hypodermic needle. Most people find acupuncture calm and relaxing. Patients often describe the needle sensation as a tingling or dull ache. This is a sign that the Qi is being stimulated and released, indicating that the treatment is working. At Omnia, we also offer Electroacupuncture and Fu Needle treatments, which minimise any fear or discomfort caused by needles.

Is Acupuncture available in the NHS? Will it be covered by Private Health Insurance?2024-02-22T14:09:23+00:00

Acupuncture is sometimes available on the NHS from GP practices and physiotherapists, as well as in most pain clinics and hospices in the UK. Most acupuncture patients pay for private treatment. As the demand for complementary medicine increases, more private health insurance companies such as AVIVA and BUPA are beginning to offer coverage for acupuncture.

Why is your tongue assessed?2024-02-27T14:24:45+00:00

The tongue acts like a barometer, reflecting the health and well-being of your internal meridians and organs. The Acupuncturist will look at the general characteristics of the tongue such as colour, shape, cracks and coating on it to get an idea of how your body is functioning on a macro level.

Why is your pulse assessed?2024-02-27T14:25:03+00:00

There are 12 pulse positions on each wrist that the Acupuncturist will palpate. Each position corresponds to a specific meridian or organ system. An Acupuncturist observes the quality of your pulse looking for certain characteristics that reflect your overall health such as pulse rate and strength and the width of each pulse. This allows the Acupuncturist to pinpoint which imbalance is causing the symptom of the disease.
