Acupuncture

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture has been a successful treatment for a number of conditions for thousands of years. Originating in China it is a recognised system of alternative healing. In fact the British Medical Association recognises its benefits, with some health authorities now offering the treatment on the NHS.acupuncture hand

Treatments may also promote well-being with increased energy and better sleep, just some of the reported benefits.

What does a treatment involve?

To begin with you will be asked a series of questions in order to build up a detailed picture of you, the individual. Typically these will be about your health, lifestyle and emotional condition. Your practitioner may also check your pulses to help towards assessment. A treatment plan can then be drawn up based on your specific needs.

Very fine, sterile needles are then inserted into the skin at targeted points which channel the flow of energy or ‘Qi’ throughout the body. This helps to stimulate your body’s curative properties to reinstate balance and promote natural healing.
Our holistic approach treats you as an individual; body, mind and spirit.

What can it treat?

At the Acupuncture Centre our practitioners aim to not only treat specific conditions but to also increase your general wellbeing and to help you feel better in yourself.
