Acupuncture & Tuina in Bristol
Southville, Bedminster and Knowle
Jon Lee offers acupuncture and tuina (Chinese massage and physical therapy) at 2 Bristol clinics – Knowle and Southville or Bedminster. He practises 5-element and Traditional Chinese Medicine styles of acupuncture and tuina and blends these with western medical and scientific knowledge.
Also important to his approach is experience in shiatsu and thai massage, and a long-established practice in the self-healing and health-promoting exercises of qi-gong. Simple, powerful exercises are often offered as part of treatment.
Acupuncture is a whole-person therapy that uses a variety of techniques to physically treat the body and help it to heal itself. Precise points on the body are stimulated using fine needles, warmth or other methods to send signals to the body and mind as a whole to encourage and promote beneficial changes.
Tuina provides the direct bodywork branch of Chinese medicine and is used either alone or to enhance the effects of acupuncture. It is generally dynamic and can be gentle or vigorous and deep, depending on the needs of the person being treated. Continuous and flowing, stretching and toning is achieved through the stimulating of wave-like patterns of movement within the body.
Precise adjustments and deep healing are achieved through manipulation techniques that use the same points as acupuncture as well as knowledge of the musculo-skeletal structure.
During acupuncture treatment you may feel some unusual, but often pleasant sensations in your body, and you may find yourself relaxing or becoming more energised, or feeling ‘better in yourself’. Symptoms can sometimes be relieved during a single session, but usually a course of treatment will be required.
Tuina can be experienced as relaxing or invigorating, with many moving and stimulating techniques employed to release holding and move blood and energy to where it is needed to allow healing.
