Acupuncture point treatment has evolved over thousands of years. It is called empirical science when Acupuncture point have been systematically tried and observed for functions and treatment efficancy. This art was started by the use of what the Chinese call ‘ashi’ points, or points where there is pain. Bones, sharpened stones, or bamboo were inserted into these ‘ashi Acupuncture point’ and it was found to give relief. Over the next few centuries, Qigong practitioners, doctors, and shamans began to see and map out the system of energetic meridians that course throughout our body. To date this is still being refined. Acupuncture point are specific points on the body which give particular access to this energetic system, performing different functions depending on their locations and the patterns of disease disharmony involved.
Acupuncture works by regulating or promoting the body’s self-healing response. Fine needles are inserted into the skin at various points on the meridians along which Qi flows. These stimulate the flow of energy through the body helping to regulate the yin/yang balance and bringing healing and well being. Due to her high level of training, Ms Dan Jiang is able to master diverse acupuncture techniques, for example: routine body acupuncture: scalp: electric; and other specialist acupuncture techniques to treat those patients who suffer mild to severe disease or complex conditions.
Ms Dan Jiang uses fine high grade surgical steel needles to stimulate the Acupuncture point on your body. These pre-sterilized and disposable needles are used ‘only once’. The needles are usually retained in the body for 10 minutes to one hour. While the patient is relaxed, the Acupuncture practitioner may choose to manipulate particular needles at particular Acupuncture point to give desired effects.
