About Acupuncture

The most natural way to promote recovery and restore energy.

Acupuncture is a very safe form of treatment, which has been practised in China for over 2,000 years to restore, promote and maintain good health and body strength.

Here at the clinic, we offer a friendly and professional service, with a thorough and detailed understanding of your condition, from both a Western and Chinese Medicine perspective.

Your treatment is individually tailored, not only to alleviate your symptoms but also to address the root cause of your problem, for a more effective result.

An Initial course of Acupuncture is typically between 6-10 weekly sessions, depending on the severity of the problem. Once your symptoms have subsided regular monthly or six weekly treatments are recommended to support and maintain your health and fitness.

Acupuncture is gradually being recognised by the Medical world as one of the most valuable methods of treatment for chronic pain and sports injuries. It is a quick and powerful method for releasing pain and tension in the body, improving posture, counteracting muscle soreness and increasing flexibility.

There are a number of Clinical trials and research papers on the effectiveness of Acupuncture for a range of conditions. A full list of these can be found on the British Acupuncture Council website.

About your treatment.

At your first consultation, you will be asked in detail about your symptoms, diet habits, sleeping patterns and medical history along with tongue and pulse diagnosis, which gives us a much better idea of your health and constitution, before formulating your individual treatment plan. This appointment lasts approximately 1¼ hours.

Subsequent treatments take approximately 50 minutes. On average we recommend an initial course of 6-10 weekly sessions, with a view to reassessing your progress after this stage. Some acute conditions require twice weekly sessions for a short period of time, to help reduce the symptoms and pain quicker.

Once your symptoms have subsided you may prefer to continue with maintenance treatments, usually at intervals of four to six weeks, which invariably prevents the original condition from returning.

Occasionally we may use other techniques to enhance your treatment, such as Moxa, Cupping, Auricular Therapy, Body Magnets, Acupressure or Balance Acupuncture Techniques, depending upon your presenting condition.
