More About Acupuncture

Acupuncture – Michael Potter Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Medicine

Acupuncture first came to public attention in the West when President Nixon visited the peoples’ Republic of China in the early 1970s. Since then it has become increasingly popular and has earned a reputation as an effective remedy for a wide range of medical conditions. There has been a steady increase in the number of professionally trained practitioners in the UK, from just an handful of qualified acupuncturists in the 1970s to over 2500 registered with the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC).

Traditional Acupuncture, as practiced by BAcC acupuncturists is an holistic therapy, and is based on principles of vitalism; our health is maintained by the regulated, coordinated movement of Qi. Qi can be translated in many different ways, but broadly, it is our life force; the animating energy which gives us life and health.

Qi flows through a network of meridians, which flow throughout our bodies. These meridians animate our vital organs, circulating blood and regulating our vital functions (consciousness, memory, appetite, sleep etc). By the insertion of fine needles into points on the meridians, the strength and smooth flowing of Qi can be enhanced.

The flow of Qi can be disturbed by a number of factors. These include; emotional states such as anxiety, stress, anger, fear or grief; poor nutrition; weather conditions; hereditary factors; infections; poisons and trauma. The principle aim of acupuncture in treating the whole person is to restore the equlibrium between the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of the individual.
Members of the BAcC are bound by strict Codes of Professional, Ethical and Hygenic Practice.

The combination of hypnotherapy with acupuncture is in our opinion, the quickest way to give up smoking, by treating the “satisfaction link” mentioned below and by altering the body’s perception of nicotine.

Acupuncture treatment tends to transform the taste of tobacco into a bad experience, which may make smoking cessation less difficult. Also, acupuncture treatment alleviates nervousness, agitation, and other signs of mental distress. This calming effect may also make the smoking cessation experience less stressful.

By using advanced hypnosis we can find out where your subconcious is gaining its ‘satisfaction link’ from and redirect that satisfaction link elsewhere, to stop any cravings. We can also use suggestions that will help you further. Most people assume that when they stop smoking they will put on weight or become ‘moody’ or aggressive. In some this becomes a self fulfilling prophecy, because they already believe it is going to happen, it will happen. We can help change the way your subconcious views this so that weight gain/anger do not have to become options.
