Our own physical body possesses a wisdom which we who inhabit the body lack. ~Henry Miller

Acupuncture is becoming increasingly popular as an effective treatment for a wide range of ailments

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), health issues are seen as a state of imbalance within the body, where our energy becomes stuck or depleted. Acupuncture works directly with our body’s energy to unblock the energetic obstructions which cause ill health, and boost our body’s own healing powers. Fine needles are inserted at specific points along energetic meridians, and these have a direct effect on improving the energetic function of the organs of the body.

What conditions can acupuncture treat?

It can treat many conditions including infertility, menstrual problems, recurrent miscarriage, headaches and migraines, chronic pain, pregnancy related illnesses, frozen shoulder and tennis elbow, stress, anxiety, insomnia and depression, skin disorders, mental-emotional problems, recurrent colds, sciatica, lower back ache and more. Further information and research studies are available

What benefits can be expected?

Some people experience relief after only one or two sessions, and this is most commonly the case with acute conditions that are treated close to the onset. With conditions that are more chronic, and have been experienced for a length of time, relief is generally felt incrementally over some time (up to 6-10 sessions). However, goals based on expected outcomes are set at the first consultation and a full review is carried out after an agreed period of time, normally six sessions.

Besides feeling relief from symptoms, other benefits include deep relaxation, enhanced immunity and a feeling of general well-being.
