Every Monday between 9 am - 19 pm, the clinic welcomes the Dorking residents aged over 60yr and
the nurses to benefit from affordable acupuncture treatments.
The cost of the treatment is £40 for 60 minutes.
As a person ages, their vital energy/life force or “chi” decreases.
Acupuncture helps treat disease and general malaise by restoring and normalizing the flow and balance of qi in the meridians to return the body to a state of balance and health.
Most patients present with symptoms of overall deficiency and stagnation and chronic pain.
Going for a walk, working out, sitting comfortably and playing with the grandkids all can increase the uncomfortable pain issues they may experience.
Acupuncture helps to increase flow, vitality, circulation and move stagnation.
Many acute and chronic conditions that commonly affect seniors:
Acupuncture is a gentle yet highly effective treatment that works safely regardless of the medications a patient may be taking, as well as helping to alleviate any side effects that may be a result of these medications.
A mild acute condition may take only a few visits to resolve completely.
Painful acute conditions should be seen at least 3 times a week, sometimes every day if indicated, until the situation improves.
A chronic disease will certainly take longer.
A chronic disease should be seen at least twice per week, for a treatment course of 10-12 sessions.
After this series you can taper down to once a week, and then every other week, then ending with once a month until your issue is completely resolved.
After your first visit, you may experience some of the following symptoms:
These symptoms are not a sign that anything is wrong.
Acupuncture is a cleansing and balancing of the whole body.
As you heal, these symptoms will pass, and you will begin to feel better.
After your session, you may feel tired for up to 3 days. During this time, your body is cleansing and eliminating the toxins and poisonous waste that builds up in the blood stream.
Fatigue is part of the normal healing process, and can be a positive sign that acupuncture is working.
We encourage you to relax and take it easy for the first 1-3 days. You might find it helpful to take a warm, relaxing bath or shower before bedtime.
It is important that you hydrate before and after a treatment.
BAA and BAF worked with Public Health England and the Office of National Statistics to raise the category of acupuncture from 3219 - the category of Health Associate, up to 2220 - the level of Osteopaths and Physiotherapists. All professional acupuncturists now belong in the category of Healthcare Professionals. This means that in the event of future Tiers of Lockdowns the clinic will be able to stay open.
