Acupuncture is a safe and established treatment for a large number of health conditions. It is a time-honoured Oriental system of healing, which applies the principles of Classical Chinese philosophy to Medicine and sees mankind as an integral part of nature.
By looking at the internal conditions of the patient, the practitioner aims to correct imbalances through the insertion of a few ultra-fine needles, into specific points on the body, which is known to stimulate a healing and rebalancing response from the inside out.
We have two acupuncturists at the practice, Simon Casciano and Ioonah Woods. Both are highly trained and clinically experienced members of the British Acupuncture Council. Their refined style of acupuncture uses a minimum number of needles to promote the strongest effect.
Acupuncture is a gentle, enjoyable and highly relaxing treatment to experience.
Common symptoms treatable by acupuncture include: anxiety, depression, nausea, blood pressure, musculoskeletal pain, diabetes, fatigue, insomnia, hormonal imbalances, nervous system disorders and chronic symptoms arising from long term conditions.
