Chinese Herbal Medicine has always been considered pre-eminent amongst the various methods of healing within traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).
It is practised extensively throughout clinics and hospitals in China alongside Western medicine. Its systematic approach and clinical effectiveness has had the most profound influence on the practice of medicine all over the Far East.
Acupuncture treatment has been practiced in China and the Far East for thousands of years as an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Acupuncture is a safe and effective system of healing and can be used to treat people of all ages with a wide range of illnesses.
The Pain Clinic in Upton Clinic specialises in the treatment of pain and discomfort utilising mainly acupuncture or/and medical massage (acupressure). Chinese medicine has utilised acupuncture for pain relief for thousands of years and its success is confirmed through modern research. The World Health Organisation has recognised acupuncture’s effectiveness since its Beijing symposium in June 1979 and again as recently as 2003.
In September 2009, researchers from the University of Michigan published in the Journal of NeuroImage evidence of acupuncture’s effectiveness on the brain’s long-term ability to regulate pain (Zubieta, Scott, Napadow, Gracely, & Clauw). The study showed treatment with acupuncture increased the binding availability of mu-opoid receptors (MOR) in regions of the brain that process and dampen pain signals.
