Acupuncture is a safe, natural, and effective system of medicine that has been practised in Asia for thousands of years, and more recently in combination with Western medicine.  Treatment works on the principal that the body works in harmony with the mind via the flow of energy (Qi, pronounced ‘chee’).  Disruption or imbalance in the energy flow can lead to pain, illness or simply a feeling of being unwell.  By inserting very fine needles into specific points on the body, the flow of Qi can be balanced and, as a result, a healthy equilibrium restored.

Modern studies have shown that acupuncture can be effective in the treatment of a variety of conditions, including musculoskeletal and joint pain, osteoarthritis, stress, anxiety, depression and other mood disorders, hormonal imbalances and fertility, digestive issues, headaches, nausea, skin problems and allergies, as well as promoting overall wellbeing.

Acupuncture needles are extremely fine, sterile, and single use.  They are inserted into a small number of points on the body during treatment and often retained for around 20 minutes, during which time you are encouraged to relax and even sleep.

Your first appointment will include a full consultation and treatment and will last for approximately 90 minutes.

Standard follow-up appointments last 45 minutes to an hour.
