Medical Acupuncture

Medical Acupuncture, Islington, London, N1 Acupuncture was originally part of traditional Eastern medicine, and has been practiced for thousands of years to cure many ailments. Doctors and missionaries brought acupuncture to Europe in the 17th century. It is now a common and widely accepted therapy.

In the Western Medical form of acupuncture, practitioners consider the physical and chemical effects the insertion of needles may have on 'trigger' points or acupoints. Trigger points are sensitive spots, often situated where nerves leave or enter muscles or tissues. Inserting a needle at these points stimulates the nervous system to release chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These chemicals will either change the experience of discomfort, or they will trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones which influence the body's own internal regulating system. The resulting improvement in biochemical balance results in stimulation of the body's innate healing abilities, and promotion of physical and emotional well-being.

  Karen Willis can somehow create magic. In the 6 years i've been going to her she's sorted out my aching back, shoulder and neck. She's rebalanced me and often after only 1 session. I don't always completely understand what she's doing but I trust her because everything she has done has worked. She also treated me throughout my pregnancy and when my daughter was born with ventouse and forceps she gave some cranial to help rebalance her too. Karen has such a depth of knowledge and a breadth of experience you know she has thought through, decided and acted in the best way possible for you. No matter where I move to I'll seek her out because she is my best kept secret and I have not found anyone better.
