Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that has been used for at least 2,000 years to balance the body and promote its natural ability to heal.   It is a safe treatment that looks to address the root cause of symptoms and is tailored for you as an individual, focussing on the body and mind as a whole.

Very fine, single-use, sterile needles are inserted through the skin to stimulate acupuncture points, these are located on acupuncture ‘meridians’ or ‘channels’.  The treatment is painless, but you may experience some tingling or numbness, and many people feel very relaxed during the treatment.   Depending on the nature of the issue being treated and how chronic it is a number of sessions may be required.   We will develop a personal treatment plan during the first consultation which is reviewed as sessions progress.

There is plenty of current evidence-based research to show the effectiveness of acupuncture to treat a variety of conditions from migraines to menopausal problems to back issues.
