Fatigue

‘A good engine and enough fuel in the tank ensures you arrive at your destination.’

Whether by way of lack of sleep, inadequate nutritional absorption, overwork and exhaustion or as a symptom of acute or chronic illness, fatigue disables our motivation and the battery required to live and experience life and to enjoy it.

Most of us wish we had more energy, but simply putting more fuel in the tank is not the only solution. Coffees and stimulants in excess only lead to dependence and a further breakdown of the body to adequately provide sustainable high grade vitality. Much like a car, whilst fuel is important as a source of energy, we must also have an engine that is fuel efficient and structurally sound. When treating conditions of fatigue, it is important to treat the underlying causes so that they do not sap any increases in energy supply that are provided through treatment. Treating any imbalances in the body along with stimulating the body to produce more energy and make better available use of resources provides the best long term solutions to conditions of fatigue.

Some conditions where acupuncture can produce excellent outcomes where fatigue is an issue are;

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Overworked and exhausted
  • Chronic disease
  • Chemotherapy and radiation side effects
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
