Why People Chose Acupuncture

Many people come to acupuncture for help with specific symptoms or to relieve chronic pains like osteoarthritis of the knee. Some use acupuncture because they feel generally unwell but have no obvious diagnosis.

Acupuncture is a safe treatment for all ages and can be used effectively alongside conventional medicine and other complementary therapies.

Acupuncture originated over 2,000 years ago in China and has been used there and in other far eastern cultures ever since. It is now widely accepted all over the world and, in the UK, more and more people are finding out what acupuncture can do for them.


What Can I Expect?

Most people’s experience of needles is of those used in injections and blood tests. Acupuncture is very different and the very fine needles bear little resemblance to these. When a needle is inserted into an acupuncture point on a meridian of the body you may feel a tingling sensation or a dull ache for a second or two.

During treatment the needles will often be left in place for up to 20 minutes and patients commonly experience a pleasant feeling of relaxation.

Treatment is aimed at the root of your condition as well as the main symptoms. This approach helps with resolving your complaint and many people find it can also lead to an improvement with other niggling problems, increased energy levels and an enhanced felling of wellbeing.
