It’s been just over two months since I reopened the acupuncture clinic after the restrictions eased, and it has been fantastic to see my wonderful clients again!
So many people have been suffering during lockdown. Coronavirus may have hit but that didn’t mean every other health issue disappeared. People have struggled with chronic pain, depression, weight gain, high levels of stress and anxiety – all of which can be effectively managed with Acupuncture.
Right from the beginning when I opened my clinic over 14 years ago I put strict cleaning and hygiene measures in place, so it was simple to meet the guidelines for reopening after lockdown. The British Acupuncture Council Code of Safe Practice sets the standards I must meet and maintain every day. These include:
Following these guidelines has meant that I have neither spread or contracted anything to or from any of my patients. I hope this reassures you about coming for an appointment – my clinic is as safe and welcoming as ever!
Late summer is the perfect time to start preparing for the latter part of the year. Autumn, with its energies of change and transition will soon be here and this is a great time to start building our immune resilience to colds and flu.
Prevention is better than cure when it comes to immunity. It is better to do what we can to reduce the likelihood of getting an infection, rather than wait and see what happens if we pick something up.
Research shows acupuncture has a profound influence on immunity. Needling specific points can:
A major part of our immune system resides in the gut, in the form of bacteria and yeasts known as the gut microbiome. These microbes communicate constantly with all parts of the body – including immune cells. If you are struggling with any digestive complaints – Irritable Bowel Syndrome, bloating, excess gas, heartburn – your gut microbiome may be affected. It’s important to get help for these symptoms so that your nutrient absorption and immunity isn’t compromised. I see many clients with all manner of digestive conditions, for which Acupuncture is highly effective.
Acupuncture is an holistic form of care and I always offer lifestyle support to my clients to complement their treatments. When it comes to building immune resilience, it is vital to look at:
Paying attention to these areas brings benefits not just to our immunity, but our energy and overall well being too.
