Acupuncture at Bridgeham 

Did you know? …

In ancient China preventative health treatment was considered very important, so people paid their acupuncturist to keep them well and he received no money if they fell ill!

Acupuncture is a great natural way of helping to maintain good health and well-being and relieving the negative effects of stress in our busy lives.

Stress is how the brain and body respond to any demand put on them.  Everyone feels stressed from time to time, although people vary in how well they respond or recover.
Not all stress is bad either – it can motivate people to prepare or perform and may be a life-saver in a dangerous situation.

But long-term stress can harm your health and, over time it may contribute to more serious problems like heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, depression and anxiety.
Recognising the signs and taking some practical steps to manage stress can reduce, or prevent its effects.

Acupuncture can help by decreasing heart rate, lowering blood pressure, relaxing muscles and calming the emotions.

 Christine our new acupuncturist will be around Mondays, Fridays and the occasional Saturday for consultations.
Make an appointment and see how Acupuncture could help you!

Nutrition

It’s National Sandwich week!
And if you’re bored of your usual ham and cheese… you might want to spice up your lunchbox with these nutritious and delicious sandwich ideas.
  1. Grilled chicken, avocado, mixed greens and grated carrot multigrain wrap

Healthy, quick and simple providing the perfect balance of protein, fat and fibre to keep your energy levels high as well as satisfying your taste buds. Try adding shredded red cabbage for extra crunch.

  1. Greek Salad wholemeal pita pocket

Chopped cucumbers, tomatoes, red onions, grumbled feta and chickpeas mixed with a little olive oil provides a satisfying filling for your pita bread. Make extra filling for a healthy salad lunch the following day.

  1. Open faced chicken pesto on Rye.

Reduce your carbohydrates and have an open sandwich instead. Rye is a dense and nutritious option, just spread it with pesto and pile it high with grilled chicken, sundried tomatoes and rocket. Drizzle with a little olive oil.
