Auricular acupuncture is a form of acupuncture that involves the stimulation of specific points on the ear for therapeutic purposes. This means people can be treated quickly in a non-intrusive way.
With the health service at bursting point and the rising cost of living, the Bucks Acupuncture Clinic is opening an affordable walk-in clinic in the middle of Buckingham.
Here are some potential benefits of auricular acupuncture:
Pain relief: may help people with chronic pain conditions such as headaches, low back pain, and osteoarthritis.
Stress reduction: may help to reduce stress and anxiety, as it can stimulate the release of endorphins and other neurotransmitters that promote feelings of relaxation and well-being.
Addiction treatment: Auricular acupuncture has been shown to be effective in helping people overcome addiction to drugs, alcohol, and tobacco.
Improved digestion: may help to improve digestion and reduce symptoms of digestive disorders such as bloating, constipation, and diarrhoea.
Improved circulation: may help to improve circulation and boost the immune system.
Weight loss: Some studies have suggested that auricular acupuncture may help to promote weight loss by reducing cravings and increasing metabolism.
People are welcome to attend the Community Centre on Cornwalls Meadow, Buckingham, MK18 1RP Any time between 11am and 12pm on Mondays.
Treatments last 20 minutes (doors close at 11:40am) and entry costs £15.
Please note: The Bucks Acupuncture Clinic reserves the right not to treat someone if it is not in the person’s best interest. Also while auricular acupuncture has been shown to be effective for these and other conditions, more research is needed to fully understand its mechanisms of action and optimal use.
