Acupuncture has a reputation for being painful - but pain is not necessary for acupuncture to be effective. My practice of acupuncture focuses on providing a relaxing and painfree and effectivetreatment using ultra thin needles. Gentle needling and moxibustion techniques aim to encourage an openness and receptivity to treatment.
Welcome to the home of traditional acupuncture, a therapy that originates in the far East and dates back more than 2500 years ago. Although acupuncture is an ancient form of treatment it is up to datemore than ever before. It looks at the patient as a whole and treats the person, not just the disease. This is particularly relevant in our modern society where stress, emotional problems and lifestyle often seem to overtake our health and wellbeing.

Please note that from the 1st March 2011 the Advertising Standards Authority no longer permits practitioners to state or suggest that either acupuncture or Chinese herbal medicine can treat specificconditions, regardless of a practitioner's training or experience. This is despite innumerable clinical trials of Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture that have been carried out in many countries over many years.

As a sceptic, I really appreciated the calm, practical approach to Acupuncture. I got lots more energy from it. It helped with my back pain and had the surprising knock on effect of helping hugelywith what I thought was incurable, really awful period pain. If you're looking for someone to take away your pain or suffering overnight with no effort at all on your part then this is not for you.
