WI gets needled

Stanhoe WI members learn about acupuncture.

Nineteen members and guests heard Nicola Porter give a very informative talk on acupuncture at their January meeting

There are many different forms of acupuncture, with the true form harking back to traditional Chinese medicine. It has many facets other than needles and is used to treat the person, not the direct area of pain. We were shown Moxa Balm, burning therapy, a seed on a plaster used via the ear, a therapy cup, pressure point bands and a special spoon, all of which are used in specific ways on the body.

Nicola stressed the importance of visiting a registered acupuncturist who will have a three-year degree training as well as supervised treatment sessions before being allowed to practise. Local practitioners can be found on the website of the British Acupuncture Council.

This created a great deal of interest amongst the audience and many questions arose for Nicola to answer very fully.

In the WI Business section afterwards members listened to the five Resolutions proposed for voting at the national AGM, and voted on the one that they felt to be most useful to be carried forward. Centenary Year Booklets were also offered, names were taken for various visits, and very importantly Smartie tubes were given out for members to refill with coins for the charity of the year which members will nominate for group support.
