Boost your energy at Care and Cure clinic
By Roisin Peddle
Do you feel tired all the time? If you suffer from low energy levels, fatigue, and exhaustion, you might think that this is normal. At Care and Cure clinic, traditional Asian medicine is used to resolve the many problems that arise from fast-paced modern living. You might not show the classic symptoms of exhaustion, but feeling tiredness after eating, an afternoon slump, or a lack of get-up-and go are all problems which can escalate. You may end up finding it harder to concentrate on tasks, and feel increasingly frustrated and irritable. Acupuncture, acupressure, and traditional Chinese herbs can help. Using these tried and tested methods will soon increase your energy levels and put a pep in your step.
Acupuncture’s basic principle states that all organs in the body have an individual energy. Traditional Chinese medicine holds that energy travels from the organs to the skin through channels called meridians, which are connected all over the body. At certain points the meridians connect to form acupuncture points which each correspond to an organ. If the energies become out of balance due to stress, overwork, or excessive living, you may experience low energy levels, digestive problems, and poor sleep.
Acupuncture points stimulate the central nervous system, releasing chemicals into the muscles, brain, and spinal cord, thus promoting the body’s own natural healing abilities. Studies have shown that acupuncture may alter brain chemistry by changing the release of neurotransmitters and neurohormones in a good way.
At Care and Cure clinic, the acupuncturist will first hold a full consultation with the client. After diagnosis, the therapist will then insert small needles into the acupuncture points in order to stimulate the connecting organs. This will boost the individual energy of the organ and regulate the flow of energy around the body, helping with energy levels.
Acupressure can also help your energy flow and help relieve pain. This holistic healing method can help clients adapt to stress, reduce fatigue, and increase energy. Acupunture is especially helpful for people suffering with stress. Its tranquillising effect can relieve feelings of anxiety and depression as well as improve well-being. It can ease the tension associated with anxiety-related conditions and can be used in a clinical setting to treat these issues.
The staff at Care and Cure clinic can also advise clients on Chinese herbs, which can be easily used in cooking, to boost immunity, strengthen muscles, and improve digestion.
