Acupuncture is a complex medical system that is used to diagnose and treat illness, prevent disease and improve well being. It originated in China more than 3,000 years ago and due to its proven effectiveness, has been embraced throughout the world. It involves the insertion of extremely fine pre-sterilised needles at predetermined points on the body’s surface to restore health on a physical, psychological and emotional level.
Acupuncture can be used alone or combined with other forms of Traditional Chinese Medicine such as cupping and moxibustion.
Acupuncture is compatible with Western Medicine and we will work closely with your GP if required.
