What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a system of healing which has been practiced in China for thousands of years and is used to treat a wide range of physical, mental and emotional conditions. Extensive practice and research has demonstrated the effectiveness of acupuncture in treating many conditions from anxiety to back pain; insomnia to stress. With its holistic approach it can be used both for the relief of ailments and as a preventative medicine.

What does it feel like?
The needles used are very fine and are not painful. The sensation felt is often described as a tingling or dull ache around the area. Patients often report feeling relaxed or invigorated during and after treatment.

What will happen on my first visit?
Your first consultation may be longer than subsequent sessions and could last up to 2 hours. In this session we will discuss your current symptoms and take a detailed health history in order that we can create an individual treatment plan. Follow up treatments last from 45 minutes to 1 hour.

How often will I need treatment?
As each person and their condition is unique, the number of treatments will vary. Most patients attend weekly for the first few sessions, with treatments becoming less frequent after 3-6 sessions. Patients often report feeling much better in themselves, with increased energy levels, better concentration and an enhanced sense of well being. As a result, they come back every few months for maintenance and preventative treatments.
