Natural Balance Acupuncture is brought to you by Padma Panigrahi. Padma is a practitioner of 5 Elements Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Acupuncture. She integrates both styles into her treatments. Padma has extensive experience in treating all conditions but has a particular interest in treating psychological problems (anxiety, stress, depression and insomnia) and women's health (including infertility and pre to post partum support). Padma offers treatments in the Berkshire Area with treatment rooms in Ascot.
Traditional acupuncture is a healthcare system based on ancient principles which go back nearly two thousand years. It is still used extensively in hospitals in China alongside western medicine. The underlying principle of treatment is that illness and pain occur when the body’s Qi/natural energy cannot flow freely. There may be many reasons for this; emotional and physical stress, poor nutrition, infection and injury are the most common. The overall aim of acupuncture treatment is to restore the body and mind to a natural balance by re-establishing the free flow of Qi/energy and to trigger the body’s natural healing response.
