Acupuncture

Acupuncture can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions and clinical research is constantly evolving. The World Health Organisation reports the conditions and symptoms where acupuncture has been shown to have had effective results. These include allergic rhinitis, depression, headaches, pain conditions including lower back pain and knee pain, rheumatoid arthritis, and nausea and vomiting, including morning sickness.

Acupuncture originated over 2000 years ago in China and other far eastern countries where it still features in mainstream healthcare. It involves the insertion of fine single-use sterile needles into specific points on the body to regulate the flow of 'Qi' or the body's vital energy.

People have acupuncture treatment for many different reasons, whether seeking treatment to help relieve specific symptoms or pains or because they generally feel unwell. It can help promote your body's own healing response and help restore its natural equilibrium.

All acupuncture is carried out by our qualified, experienced therapists.
