acupuncture (1)

Acupuncture is an ancient system of healing developed over thousands of years. It is now widely used and accepted all over the world.

The theory of acupuncture is based on the principal of ‘Qi’ which flows through our body in channels called ‘meridians’. Acupuncture stimulates points on the meridians to activate the body’s own natural healing abilities and works by balancing the whole body and mind. 

An acupuncture treatment focuses on the individual person and not just their illness or condition, all symptoms are seen in relation to each other. Two people with the same western diagnosis are likely to receive different acupuncture treatments.

About Me



Does it Hurt?

Acupuncture needles are very fine – much finer than hypodermic

needles used for injections. Some people feel a mild tingling

sensation or a mild ache at the needle area. Many people feel a

sense of relaxation during a treatment.


Is it safe?

All needles are sterile, single-use disposable needles. I abide by the strict hygiene procedures set by the British Acupuncture Council. Acupuncture is suitable for men, women and children and can be used safely alongside Western medicine.


How many sessions will I need?

In some cases patients react very quickly to acupuncture and only 1 or 2 treatments are needed. Other long term chronic conditions may need treatment for several months. Usually a course of treatments is recommended. Often people coming for one particular condition may find that other problems, not so prominent, have cleared up in the mean time. Many people have acupuncture treatment regularly to maintain good health throughout the year.

People often seek acupuncture for conditions such as:

Back & Joint Pain.  Headaches & Migraines.  Stress.  Anxiety & Depression. Tiredness & Sleep Problems.  Digestive Disorders.  Respiratory Problems, Allergies.  Chronic fatigue syndrome (M.E).  Menstrual & Menopausal Problems.  Fertility and IVF  and many other Acute & Chronic conditions which may not be listed above.


How long does a treatment last?
Your first treatment may take up to 1 1/2 hours as it includes a free consultation, following treatments take up to 1 hour.

What happens in a treatment?

To gain a thorough understanding of your main complaint and your general health involves asking questions about your current symptoms and your medical history, as well as such things as your sleeping pattern, your appetite and digestion, and your emotional wellbeing. Women are also asked about their menstrual cycle, any pregnancies and childbirth.
An examination of the tongue and taking the pulses on both wrists is part of the treatment diagnosis. You might feel that some questions appear unrelated to your condition but the information you give helps to form a more complete picture of your health.


What happens after the treatment?

You may feel a little tired or sleepy and should take this into account if you are planning to drive or use heavy machinery straight after your treatment.
Some people on the other hand feel quite energised.
You should refrain from vigorous exercise after treatment and, ideally, give yourself a little time to rest. It is also advisable not to drink alcohol for several hours after treatment.
