Jade treats a broad range of physical and psychological health concerns with traditional acupuncture.
Oriental Medicine regards any pathology as part of an overall pattern of disharmony and imbalance. This may, and often does, mean that we observe and treat physical, emotional, and energetic aspects attributed to a disorder together, at the same time. One aspect might be treated but another will also improve. This will often be reflected by symptoms (and shifts) across the mind and body simultaneously. This makes acupuncture ideal for chronic, complex and mental health conditions, which tend to cluster together.
Acupuncture is a highly effective, clinically proven, non-pharmacological intervention for mental health and stress disorders, including, but not limited to:
Acupuncture has demonstrated, through numerous clinical studies, to perform at least equally, and often better than ‘standard care’ for a range of mental health conditions, compared to pharmaceuticals, counselling and psychotherapy. Conditions compared included depression, anxiety, and anxiety disorders such as PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) and GAD (generalised anxiety disorder), as well numerous health conditions such as insomnia, irritable bowel syndrome, and chronic pain conditions such as Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia.
Anxiety, depression and associated mental health disorders are estimated by the World Health Organisation to be the largest growing health issue worldwide and to be the largest cause of disability by 2030. The World Health Organisation has detailed that many non drug, traditional medicines should be more comprehensively utilised and integrated into main stream health care, due to equal and sometimes better efficiency than the most currently used methods, and has specifically mentioned Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture as the best researched options of these.
