Most people would consider health and wellbeing as the most important aspect in their life, but many struggle with issues related to physical, emotional and mental illnesses and diseases.
Most pain and diseases occur due to imbalance in the system of one's body and mind. Our body has its own magnificent ability to heal itself. It just needs the "right" environment.
A number of complementary therapies could help people reaching a state of balance of body, mind and spirit. Acupuncture is one such therapy where it sees an individual as a whole being and every aspect of their situations is unique.
Acupuncture is an ancient healing art originated in China and the Far East thousands of years ago. It aims to bring the body into balance and restore its natural healing mechanism. Acupuncture treatment involves inserting needles into the acupuncture points to release any blockages and bring back the energy flow into balance and activate the body's own healing response.
It works on an ancient principle of vital energy (Qi) that runs through channels or meridians around the body that keeps it balanced and healthy. Along these channels there are acupuncture points that access the flow of energy. If this flow of energy is disturbed or blocked, it can lead to pain and diseases. It is like a flow of water on the river. If the water get stuck upstream, there won't be water downstream, which can create all sorts of problems.
Acupuncture can help a wide range of conditions. It is a very safe treatment that can produce relief from a particular ailment and improve overall health and wellbeing. The British Acupuncture Council states there are over 60 conditions where acupuncture is shown to be effective. Please check their website here.
Growing up in an environment where western medical approach is the norm (as Nila's father and grandfather were both medical doctors), Nila is very in touch with people's health and wellbeing needs.
Nila's upbringing led her to reflect that one form of medicine may not be the single answer to a problem. A combination of different approaches may be a better way for some people to regain their health and wellness.
Her acupuncture treatments can help a wide range of conditions, using integrated approach of Five Element Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, which aims to treat the mind, body and spirit as a whole.
