Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese Acupuncture 

The Acupuncture treatment 

Treatment consists of the insertion of very fine sterile needles under the skin, either for a second or two, or left in place for up to 20 minutes. In most cases a slight/no prick is felt when the needle goes in. This may be followed by a sensation of tingling, heaviness or a dull ache. It is common for people to experience a pleasant feeling of relaxation during treatment. The initial consultation includes a first treatment. Each session takes up to 45 minutes.

Each session costs £47.00

At the first appointment information will be requested about current symptoms and medical and family history. Details about lifestyle such as work, rest, sleep, diet, exercise and general emotional well-being will also be required. Following an examination of the pulse and tongue a personal treatment plan will then be discussed.
