Our Welwyn and Hatfield Acupuncture Clinic is run by Helen Taylor – Weekes and Margella Salmins. Helen has nearly 25 years of experience and has worked in analytical chemistry before. When it comes to individual patients needs no one else comes close. Our bodies have a natural healing power that comes from within all of us. Acupuncture works so well to encourage health and wellness.
Acupuncture treats health conditions by stimulating “acu-points” found at specific locations on the surface of the body. Very fine and painless needles are inserted into various Acupuncture points which can stimulate the body’s own healing response and help to restore its natural balance. This has also been shown to cause the release of our own natural pain killers, endorphin and serotonin.
The general theory of acupuncture is that proper physiological function and health depend on the circulation of nutrients, substances and energy called Qi (pronounced “chee”) through a network of “channels” or “meridians.” This network connects every organ and part of the body, providing balance, regulation and coordination of physiological processes. Pain and ill-health result when the flow of Qi through the body is disrupted or blocked by many things, including disease, pathogens, trauma/injuries and medication (side-effects), as well as lifestyle factors such as overwork, poor diet, emotions, lack of rest and stress.
Stimulation of the appropriate acu-points through acupuncture treatments helps to restore sufficient, continuous and even flow of Qi and other nutrients throughout the body, thereby restoring health and balance to the body, while relieving pain and other symptoms. The Acupuncturist uses a sophisticated and complex system of diagnostic methods that take into consideration the person as a whole, discerning the body’s pattern of disharmony rather than isolated symptoms. The aim is not only to eliminate or alleviate symptoms, but more importantly to treat the underlying cause, increase the ability to function and improve the quality of life.
