Acupuncture uses very fine sterile needles, which are inserted into points along meridians (channels), promoting the body’s natural healing response to restore balance. Electro acupuncture (using a small electrical impulse) can be used for muscular skeletal injuries or for pain.
Scientific based research has shown how acupuncture can be used to treat many 21st century health conditions, www.acupuncture.org.uk/research-fact-sheets
Traditional Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine TCM looks at the body as a whole, a web of many interconnecting layers, which come together to make each and everyone of us unique. At your first session you will be asked about what outcomes you would like to achieve, about your medical history, diet, eating habits, sleep patterns, and lifestyle so a diagnosis can be made and a customised healing program can be agreed upon to support your body to full recovery.
Your program with our therapist
Your program could include a combination of acupuncture, herbs and nutrition. We will meet during your program for regular treatments and adjustments depending on your progress. Or individual sessions are available.
In addition to our meetings, I provide email support to answer any questions you have and offer additional information about acupuncture, cupping, moxa, tui na, herbs and nutrition.
