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.

How many treatments will I need?
This is very much dependant on the nature of the complaint and how long it has been present.

Cupping / Moxibustion

Cupping originates from China and has been used for centuries to facilitate the body’s own healing response.

The placing of suction cups on targeted areas alleviates deep tension, while promoting cellular repair and balancing the flow of Qi.

Widely referred to as Moxa. This is a herbal treatment commonly applied as a heating therapy effective for nourishing Blood, boosting a compromised immune system and is a welcome treatment for those that feel the cold.

I have been a regular customer of Annie Mills for the last 10 years, and I have been consistently impressed by the treatments that I have had with her, both sports massage and, more recently, acupuncture. She is an experienced and highly professional practitioner who understands the needs of her patients and provides a competent, caring and extremely effective treatment.  Annie is an outstanding acupuncturist, and I can vouch for the results that she has achieved - in my case curing a longstanding problem with my hand that would otherwise have required surgery. On top of this, she is a kind, caring and generous lady who has chosen this career in order to help other people.  I could not recommend her more highly.
