Acupuncture

Ancient techniques, modern-day treatments

Acupuncture is a safe and natural treatment that has been used to help manage a wide range of conditions for thousands of years.

If you’re not sure if acupuncture is for you, why not have a chat with Joanne by contacting the clinic.

If you’d like to find out more about acupuncture, the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) and the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (AACP) both provide information about the vast range of research that has been conducted to better understand the therapeutic benefits of acupuncture and its uses on their websites.

What does acupuncture entail?

The treatment involves inserting incredibly fine needles into specific points on the body to restore the flow of Qi – your body’s energy – and re-establish the body’s balance. The idea of the needles can be off-putting for those who haven’t had acupuncture before, though there isn’t anything to be concerned about. People often report a slight tingling sensation or dull ache at the site where the needles are located, but the treatment isn’t painful.

In some cases, it’s necessary to enhance the effectiveness of the treatment beyond the use of needles alone. We do this through moxibustion (burning herbs on the needles), electro-acupuncture (stimulating the needles with gentle electrical currents) and cupping (placing suction cups over the needles).

Why Our Clients Recommend us

Within a few sessions she makes a real difference..
I cannot recommend Jo highly enough. I started with a long bout of insomnia after having my first baby and presumed I would just have to cope with it. However thanks to Jo’s experience and precision with her acupuncture after only 2 sessions I had started sleeping, and my rashy itchy skin got better too – it was amazing!

Now if I ever have a bad spell of sleep I come to see Jo and within a few sessions she makes a real difference. She really listens to your problems and gives you an incredible feeling of great care and attention.

Thank you!! Xxx
