Acuwell: Traditional Five Element Acupuncture in Bristol with Pamela
Welcome and thanks for visiting AcuWell's website. AcuWell is Pamela Booth's acupuncture practice, providing Traditional Five Element Acupuncture in Bristol.
AcuWell believes that each of us has a resource within, a well, from which we can draw health, well-being, and contentment. Sometimes, or oftentimes, with our demanding lifestyles and the stresses life involves, we forget how to tap into this well. Five Element Acupuncture reminds our bodies - naturally, safely, effectively, potently and powerfully - how to restore health, vitality, balance and peace of mind.
What can acupuncture help?
Acupuncture treats all aspects of physical, emotional and mental health. People come for treatment for a whole range of reasons - some come for specific conditions, others don't have a named condition but they know they don't feel quite right, some come for other reasons such as support through stressful times, as an alternative to drug therapy, to relieve the side-effects of drugs, because they want more energy and better sleep, because they overeat or feel anxious and don't know why, because allopathic medicine doesn't have much to offer their specific complaint, and for many more reasons. If you are unsure whether acupuncture would be suitable for your issues and goals, please contact Pamela to discuss this.
The World Health Organisation has endorsed acupuncture for treatment of over 180 conditions. These include:
- Chronic pain, back pain, arthritic pain
- Depression, anxiety and stress
- IBS and other digestive problems
- Migraines and other types of headaches
- PMS, menstrual irregularities and menopausal symptoms
- High blood pressure and circtulatory problems
- Infertility, pre- and post-natal support (including turning breech babies and inducing labour)
- Skin conditions such as acne and ezcema
- Asthma and other respiratory disorders
- Hay fever and other allergies
- Withdrawal symptoms during detoxification from addictive substances including alcohol and nicotine
Acupuncture treats more than just any condition you may have, it treats you as a unique individual by rebalancing your Qi. As your Qi affects everything, from the functioning of your vital organs to your emotional stability and clarity of thought, the effect of acupuncture offers more than relief from a condition. Most people experience improvement in overall well-being, increased energy and vitality, greater enjoyment of life, better sleep and improved digestion. At the same time, with acupuncture treatments you are boosting your immunity and strength to help prevent future conditions. This preventative aspect is partly where AcuWell gets it name:
To wait for the illness to develop
Before remedying it
Is to wait until one is thirsty
Before digging the well,
Is this not too late?
Nei Jing Su Wen (classical Chinese medical text)
You do not need to have a named illness to experience the benefits of acupuncture, some people come for treatment for improved motivation, to gain a general sense of well-being, to gain a sense of peace within themselves or purely for the preventative aspect.
