If you are looking for a unique Christmas gift, how about trying acupuncture? Acupuncture is a special gift that can make a real difference to the lives of your friends, family and colleagues. British Acupuncture Council members provide care to people throughout the year, but Christmas is a time when they can really help reduce stress and improve wellbeing.
Maureen Cromey, acupuncturist and British Acupuncture Council member explains: ‘Stress is a generic term used to describe the way we are feeling. Stress affects both emotions and physical health. An acupuncture session focuses on the individual, learning about their health, body type and lifestyle pressures, and considers how these combine to cause stress related problems.
‘The acupuncturist prescribes a specific treatment plan which addresses diet, exercise and lifestyle. This in combination with the needling to treat specific symptoms and strengthen the body can be very powerful. Studies have also found that acupuncture can decrease the levels of cortisol after just one session (Arranz, Siboni, De la Fuente, 2006).’
