This long-established ancient healing system is as relevant in today’s busy world as it was thousands of years ago
How does it work?
From the viewpoint of Chinese Medicine Acupuncture works by stimulating the body’s energy system the use of fine needles applied to specific points (usually on the lower legs and arms) promotes the free flow of Qi (energy) to bring about balance throughout the body.
Through extensive questioning/examination, the root cause of the complaint can be understood and so treated accordingly.
How will it feel?
Acupuncture needles are extremely thin and most report they can hardly feel a thing. A slight sensation can be experienced as the energy is located.
Is it safe?
Acupuncture has been extensively researched and remains one of the safest treatments in the UK.
