Different body regions mirror other areas. Eg. The foot treats the hand, or inner forearm treating bilateral back pain. The beautiful thing about the Balance Method is the flexibility it offers. If a treatment of lower back pain with inflammation is approached with local acupuncture into sore inflamed tissue, there is a great chance that the pain will get worse before it gets better as the inflamed body part is stimulated. The Balance Method of Acupuncture enables back treatment distally, in an area that will treat the pain away from the affected area and yield better results quickly, and greatly minimise any pain caused after treatment.
The other incredible feature of this Acupuncture style is that within seconds of needle insersion away from the painful site, the pain in the affected area subsides or changes. A few other Acupuncture points are then used to fine-tune the treatment and target the remaining pain. Absolutely incredible and changes occur immediately. Once that is done, the points remain in the body for 30min or more, while you relax.
The same procedure follows for Abdominal Bloating, Headaches, Carple Tunnel Syndrome, Tennis Elbow etc...
With Chinese Medicine, whilst the practitioner is highly versed in Western bioscience- Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology. No matter wether the pain is; bone, mucsle, nerve or tendon, a rash on the skin, period pain or a bloated stomach, the meridian channels passing through the given area are treated to free up obstructions, relieve areas of pain and enhance circulation to that particular part of the body, so it heals more rapidly and more thoroughly in a holistic and natural way.
Acupuncture tends to generate a very tranquil state, both of body and mind. Afterward you may feel rather relaxed, yet alert. A very special feeling. Those who have had it, would most likely agree.
