Acupuncture can offer relief to people who are not responding well to general medicine and to those feeling unwell, but for whom no diagnosis can be made.
How Acupuncture works
Acupuncture treats the whole person, rather
than the disease. This means that the acupuncturist looks at the patient as
a whole to find the origins of the illness. Very fine needles are then inserted
to rebalance the flow of energy in the system, by dispersing blockages or
by tapping reservoirs to replenish energy, where the body requires it.
Acupuncture has always been used as a preventative medicine, able to correct imbalances in their early stages, so that more serious conditions do not develop. Traditionally, a check-up at the change of each season provided this foundation of good health.

What happens in a treatment?
During the initial consultation the practitioner
will take a full case history of past and present illnesses and family tendencies.
The practitioner will make observations about your body including taking the
pulse and examining the tongue. Having decided on the cause of the problem,
the points and the appropriate form of treatment are chosen. Fine sterile
disposable needles are used. They are inserted into specific points on the
body and left in place for 15-20 minutes. This causes no pain. The total number
of treatments needed varies from person to person, partly depending on the
length and severity of the condition, partly on your general health &
After the treatment

relaxed or even drowsy. You are welcome to sit and relax in the clinic for
