Daily stresses, lifestyle choices and injury upset our natural balance and also lead to physical and emotional symptoms.  By identifying the root cause of the symptoms Acupuncturists use very fine, painless needles to activate specific energy points on the body. This helps to bring both body and mind back to health.  MRI scans show that acupuncture triggers the body’s healing process by calming the central nervous system, regulating hormones and releasing endorphins.

What to expect:

During your consultation your Acupuncturist will take your complete medical history in order to understand your unique physical profile and lifestyle. They will discuss any concerns you may have about your health and lifestyle, take your pulse on both wrists and may also examine your tongue and palpate for areas of muscular tension or pain. Following this, a diagnosis will be made, a treatment plan suggested and lifestyle advice offered.

Acupuncture is not painful, most of the time you will not feel the needles at all. Occasionally you may feel a very light pricking sensation for a second. Once the needle has been applied you may feel a slight tingling or warm sensation. The treatment is very relaxing and the room warm and comfortable leaving you feeling calm and energised.
