& traditional Chinese medicine
The fundamental principle of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine is to restore balance and harmony of mind and body, re-establishing order to system malfunction, treating both the cause of disease and the manifesting symptoms and/or pain. As treatment is aimed at the root cause of the condition as well as the symptoms, a more permanent solution to the problem can be found.
Acupuncture has long been used to stimulate the body’s natural responses. People are increasingly recognising that this time tested therapy can be a valuable aid to the improvement of heath. In the UK, the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) has recently endorsed its effectiveness for lower back pain.
Acupuncture can be used to treat a range of problems and at ginger we specialise in acupuncture for pregnancy and fertility, infertility (both male and female), pre and post natal conditions and birth induction. However we also treat a range of conditions including back pain, allergies, IBS and urine infections and skin conditions such as acne and psoriasis.

As a holistic approach to medicine and treatment, Acupuncture and TCM does not solely focus on the indicated problem, but the entire body and mind as an integrated health system.
Acupuncture is a unique natural medicine based on the centuries-old concept of Yin and Yang. The Qi, the vital energy circulates through the body along meridians, similar to the circulatory, nervous and lymphatic systems. When the Qi is imbalanced, disease occurs.
In acupuncture, a very fine sterile needle or moxibustion (heat source) is applied to certain points along the meridian to balance the flow of energy and promote health by harmonising the Qi.
Unlike drugs used in orthodox medicine Acupuncture has very few side effects when practised by a fully qualified practitioner.
