Acupuncture – What is it?

Acupuncture with a fully qualified practitioner is one of the safest and longest established forms of healthcare. It is suitable for people of all ages, pregnant women and children, and can be used effectively alongside conventional medicine. An acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body.

Treatment is specific to you and following a detailed consultation covering your symptoms and every aspect of your health and lifestyle, a diagnosis will be made to determine the combination of points best suited to you.

An acupuncture treatment can include other ancillary techniques such as Tui na massage, cupping, electroacupuncture with a TENS machine and warming of points and areas using a heat lamp or a smoking herb known as moxa.
