Relaxation is who you are"
Chinese Medicine is a safe method of healing, dating back over 3500 years. Acupuncture , one of the main pillars of Chinese medicine, works to maintain the body’s equilibrium by focusing on all aspects of wellbeing: physical, mental and emotional.
According to the traditional Chinese healthcare system, our health is dependent on the body’s energy to move in a smooth and balanced way through a series of channels beneath the skin called Meridians. This energy is known as Qi.
The flow of Qi can be disturbed by a number of factors. These include emotional states such as anxiety, anger, grief, as well as poor nutrition, hereditary factors, infections and trauma. The disruption in the flow of Qi for any above reasons could result in diseases.
Fertility has been a subject of great interest for Eli. Fu ke is the Chinese term for women's medicine. As in other cultures, fertility and menstruation dominate the science of female health in Chinese medicine. Clinical trials have found that acupuncture treatment can have a highly positive result on those trying for a baby and can actually aid the conception process.
Women with fertility issues feel they do not have control over the time of conception. This could potentially make them anxious and depressed. Eli has a treatment plan which incorporates acupuncture as well diet and lifestyle recommendations, sometimes alongside IVF treatment, which have demonstrated excellent results over the years.
Acupuncture stimulates the follicle hormone and affects oestrogen and progesterone level production in the body. Some of the positive effects of acupuncture in fertility treatment can be found on my Fertility and IVF tab.
Eli Afshar is also a pioneer in Cosmetic Acupuncture in London. She is one of the few Chinese Medicine Practitioners in the UK to have completed a full time post-graduate degree in Chinese Cosmetology and Facial Acupuncture.
Over the years, Eli has developed her signature rejuvenation treatment incorporating facial acupuncture, medical micro needling, light therapy, gua sha and jade roller which are combined according to the individual needs of her patients.
Cosmetic Acupuncture is a non-surgical method of reducing the signs of the aging process. It is a rejuvenation and revitalisation process designed to help the whole body look and feel younger. The treatment is based on the principles of Oriental Medicine and involves the insertion of hair-thin needles into particular areas of the face, ears, neck, hands, trunk, and legs along channels or meridians of energy. As well as focusing on particular areas of your face, the treatment will improve your overall appearance and bring out your inner- radiance. Facial Acupuncture specifically affects the face while simultaneously treating the underlying factors that contribute to the aging process.
A 1996 report in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 cases treated with Cosmetic Acupuncture, 98% had marked effects with just one course of treatment.
Eli's clinic is located in St John's wood, London NW8.
