Acupuncture

**FOR PRICES PLEASE SEE BOOKINGS PAGE**

Acupuncture is a system of medicine originating in China and dating back thousands of years. Due to the health benefits acupuncture is now used all over the world. By recognising the immense potential the body has to adjust, repair and rebalance itself, acupuncture tailors treatment in a specific way independent to that of Western medicine. Treating the root cause and not just the symptoms provide both health care and disease management. Acupuncture is one of the safest medical treatments, both conventional and complementary, on offer in the UK.

  • Two surveys conducted independently of each other and published in the British Medical Journal in 2001 concluded that the risk of a serious adverse reaction to acupuncture is less than 1 in 10,000. This is far less than many orthodox medical treatments. new stuff happening
  • Works with your body to produce its own pain killing and stress releasing hormones, such as endorphins and serotonin.
  • There are very few side effects from acupuncture. Any minor side effects that do occur, such as dizziness or bruising around needle points, are mild and self-correcting.
  • Your therapist will record all relevant details of your health condition and your medical history before treatment commences. Occasionally, based on this information, he or she may refer you to your GP for further investigation or medical treatment.
  • Your therapist uses only pre-sterilised single-use needles which are safely disposed of after your treatment.

  • Produces a stronger stimulation without causing tissue damage.
  • Ensures adequate stimulation between 2 points in a muscle to optimise acupuncture treatment.
