A year of £20 Acupuncture in Guildford Surrey

Acupuncture GuildofrdWe opened our £20/treatment clinic using acupuncture in Guildford Surrey a year ago.

We opened this clinic to help more people with acupuncture. We have always been aware that the normal rate of £40+ for this kind of treatment can be too much for some people. Especially as acupuncture usually needs a course of 4-6 weekly treatments.

Already we have helped people with a variety of conditions in the last year. We have had really positive feedback re our clinic. People like the ease of access, on-site parking, the way we work, & our results.

We can charge just £20/treatment by having 2 couches per treatment room, with a screen separating them for privacy. All consultations are in a private room before being treated. We’ve had great feedback from all our clients about us treating them in this way.

It is now widely accepted that acupuncture works. The NHS has now say that acupuncture works for many conditions. The World Health Organisation also says it works for a wide range of conditions.

Both of us having qualified and & been treating people for more than 20 years So you are in safe hands, & are guaranteed the very best in acupuncture care.  We also like to work in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere where you will quickly feel welcome and at ease.acupuncture in guildford surrey

About Stress

Acupuncture Treatment for Stress

All of us experience stress from time to time. Work, money problems, being chased by a lion, public speaking, can all cause pressure. Feeling stressed is a result of not coping with the pressure.

20% of visits to a GP are due to stress, anxiety and depression.

People react differently to stress, It can affect how your body works and how you feel or think.

Common signs of stress are sleeping and eating problems, muscle tension, headaches, dizziness. You can feel anxious, have panic attacks,  palpitations or find  it difficult to concentrate due to stress.

When  you are under stress your body produces stress hormones such as cortisol which are useful if you’re running away from a lion. If you are under stress for a long period of time your stress hormone levels fail to return to normal. This lowers your immune response and  leads to symptoms of stress.

Stress can cause serious illness. It is important to recognise the symptoms and find healthy ways to cope. Many people adopt unhealthy coping habits such as smoking or drinking. Learning to relax, regular exercise and meditation can help. Doctors often use drugs to control the symptoms of stress. Most of them have unwanted side effects.

Loneliness, Modern Life and Stress

Today we have less sense of community.  We work long hours, eat on our own & do many things on our own. We surf the internet for many hours & often don’t have a strong local friend and family network. Research shows this can hugely affect our health. It can even shorten our life a lot!

Acupuncture Treatment for Stress

Acupuncture treatment for stressAcupuncture is very effective in reducing stress. We see lots of people with  problems linked with stress, for example, pain, insomnia, irritable bowel syndrome, migraines.

It is believed that acupuncture stimulates the nervous system. It helps levels of feel-good hormones like serotonine and dopamine. This leads to a relaxation response.

In Chinese medicine it is believed that stress and negative emotions affect the smooth flow of Qi (energy) in the body. For example, anger affects the Liver energy and fear reduces Kidney energy. Acupuncture helps these energy blockages . The healing effects include slower heart rate, muscle relaxation, lower blood pressure etc.

We can also help you learn a relaxation technique that suits you .Eating better also reduces your stress levels,for example, avoiding caffeine, refined sugar and alcohol.

Many of our clients who use acupuncture for pain and other symptoms find that they start feeling more relaxed and sleep better.
