Acupuncture

Acupuncture is the ancient Chinese art of using needles that pierce the skin to influence the direction strength and flow of body energy. We use this technique mainly for pain relief, hormone imbalance, digestive complaints or stress.

We often combine acupuncture with a physiotherapy session using Auricular needles (small studs in the ear) which remain in place until the next treatment. There are not many studies that prove the efficacy of acupuncture, however we have a wealth of anecdotal evidence and our experience of using it convinces us that it is a tool we would not wish to be without. We often use electroacupuncture which can have even more profound effects.

Conditions treated: Musculoskeletal pain, female hormone imbalance, stress, digestive disorders.
