Acupuncture is one of the oldest forms of medicine which originated in the East.  This form of complementary medicine involves the insertion of very fine needles at carefully chosen points to affect the flow of energy (known as Qi) around the body, aiming to stimulate the Qi and blood flow to ultimately restore balance and harmony to the body.   I use two types of acupuncture styles; 5-Element and Traditional Chinese Medicine to offer a holistic approach to treat the body as a whole, as well as the mind and spirit.

 

Who has acupuncture and what can it treat?

 

Whilst some people have acupuncture to help with specific conditions such as osteoarthritis of the knee, others may have acupuncture because they feel generally unwell but have no obvious diagnosis.  Others may choose to have treatment to help maintain good health as a preventative measure or to simply enhance their feeling of wellbeing.  As traditional acupuncture aims to treat the whole person rather than specific symptoms in isolation, it can be effective for a range of conditions.  Please contact me if you would like more information or wish to discuss your condition in more detail.
