Donna Air: Acupuncture helps me to beat stress

Donna Air: 'Acupuncture helps me to beat stress.  'The model and actress tells why she is a fan of this ancient Chinese treatment

                                                          
Whenever Donna feels her body is out of balance she falls back on acupuncture, an alternative treatment she has relied on for years to restore her equilibrium. "I first tried acupuncture when I was 17," she says.

"I was using it to relax and de-stress from the pressures of doing live TV. After four or five hours of live television presenting my body was high on adrenaline. It was quite hard coming down from that. I found that acupuncture would balance me out.

"The things that stress me out are issues that affect everyone. Generally it's lack of time or finding the time to do relaxing things. I often have a packed work schedule and I've moved house a lot which is always stressful and of course before the start of a new job."

Acupuncture is based on the ancient Chinese belief that the human body is controlled by a life force known as Qi (pronounced "chee"). Qi flows through the body in channels known as meridians which are connected to 400 pressure points in the body.

The theory is that when your Qi is disturbed or unbalanced it can make you unwell. Acupuncture aims to restore this balance and help it run smoothly. More recently it has become popular as a means of reducing stress.

Tamzin Freeman of the British Acupuncture Council says: "Traditional acupuncture can be a positive step for anyone wanting to get their stress levels under control.

"When the pins go in people often calm down and find themselves sinking into the treatment bed. Many liken the feeling of calm to having a two-week holiday."
