Acupuncturist & Herbalist
Atara hails from the US and is a practitioner of Acupuncture and Chinese Herbalism. Acupuncture forms the basis of traditional Chinese Medicine and consists of the insertion of very thin needles at specific body points. This is to facilitate the smooth and balanced flow of Qi (body energy, pronounced Chee) along channels called meridians just beneath the surface of the skin. The purpose of this is to bring the body back into balance and relieve minor, and not so minor, ailments. According to Atara’s own website “the effectiveness of acupuncture is well documented and is endorsed as a system of primary health care by the World Health Organization.” Although acupuncture is commonly used for pain relief Atara lists the following as disorders that can also be helped by the technique : Insomnia, stress/tension, fatigue, palpitations, arthritis and joint problems, headaches and migraines, diabetes, IBS, PMS, smoking, sciatica, visual problems, infertility and bladder/kidney problems.
