Acupuncture to put the spring back into your steps
If the dull February days are sapping your energy then an acupuncture treatment at the Chichester Natural Health Centre could be just what you need to put a spring back in your step.
“It’s so important to look after your health at this time of year.” says Gabriella Kispal, fully qualified acupuncturist at the centre. “When the weather is dreary, many people feel low, lethargic and prone to catch all the bugs that are doing the rounds. Acupuncture can help boost your immune system and promote positive health and wellbeing so you can enjoy life to the full.”
Acupuncture is and ancient Eastern therapy which has been used for thousands of years to improve general health and to treat a wide variety of illnesses ranging from back pain to skin conditions, high blood pressure to menopausal symptoms. Indeed, there is now so much scientific evidence to show its safety and efficacy that many Western doctors are practising and recommending treatments.
By inserting special needles into specific points on the body, acupuncturists are able to rebalance the flow of energy, known as Qi, through the body to help clear symptoms and restore good health and wellbeing.
“Everyone is an individual and each treatment is tailored to your own specific needs,” explains Gabriella, who is a member of the British Acupuncture Council. “We always begin with a thorough assessment of physical and emotional health, including details of lifestyle, diet, stresses etc. With this information we can then provide the most beneficial treatment for you and offer practical and personalised lifestyle advice.”
If you’d like to know more about how acupuncture could help you or a family member, Gabriella offers a free 10-minute consultation to explain more about the therapy and answer queries.
“One of the most common questions is ‘Does it hurt?’,” she explains. “Most clients are pleasantly surprised that it is such a relaxing experience. The fine needles give a lovely tingly sensation, making you feel light and dreamy.”
