About Acupuncture

People come for acupuncture for many different health reasons. It is a tried and tested system of complimentary medicine that is used as a stand- alone treatment or can be used effectively alongside conventional medicine. Treatment focuses on the individual and improving their symptoms and overall well-being.

The aim of acupuncture is to get to the root cause of the symptoms and restore balance which will lead to a long term and more permanent health resolution. Whatever your particular problem, treatment is designed to affect your whole body and not just your symptoms, so you may notice other niggling complaints also get better.

The treatment itself involves the insertion of very fine, one use, sterile needles at specific points across the body. The insertion of needles helps to regulate blood flow, alleviate pain and balance emotions.

Acupuncture with a fully trained and qualified practitioner is one of the safest forms of healthcare you can choose. Many people find treatment very relaxing and often fall asleep.
