It was the ancient Chinese who first mapped the network of energy points
that covers the human body. Different points regulate how your body and mind
function. An acupuncturist uses small, disposable needles to release and
regulate the body's energy. This restores the balance throughout. You may be
apprehensive about being stuck with needles, but it won't hurt at all. On the
contrary: most people find the treatment very relaxing.
Acupuncture is very popular, and with good reason. It's been reported to
have a high rate of success treating all manner of ailments, including
2. Cranial Osteopathy
First developed in the eighteenth century, cranial osteopathy relies on
the osteopath's advanced knowledge of anatomy.
The osteopath uses his hands to detect where your bones and muscles are
misaligned. Such misalignments can cause stress. Light pressure in just the
right places will release that stress. Cranial osteopathy is quite
similar to acupuncture, so if you don't like the idea of needles, an osteopath
might be the way to go. It's a very gentle treatment, suitable for anyone from
tiny babies to the fragile elderly. During a session, you will only feel the
warmth of the osteopath's hands and a slow, blissful release of tension.
