Sports & Other injuries
How does acupuncture help with injury?
When an injury occurs, apart from the trauma to skin, muscles, tendons, bones, nerves and blood vessels that may have been damaged and of course the degree of pain involved. There might also be damage to the unseen Vital Energy (chi) Channels Community commonly called Meridians. This is where acupuncture can help.
By tapping into these channels/meridians with fine acupuncture needles we can influence the ebb and flow of this energy (chi), which can in turn influence the blood circulation, healing processes and reduce the pain.
How do herbs help with injury?
Herbs can stop bleeding, help to disperse bruises or clots, and encourage circulation. Therefore, by removing unwanted stagnation of body fluids, the nutrients can reach the effected area and enhance healing, even with bones.
