"I have just finished my 7th session of acupuncture for serious back and hip pain for which I had been given several types of drugs by my family doctor without any relief.

So I asked if I could try acupuncture and now I am getting relief from my back pain and I am having the acupuncture on my hips and hoping to get some relief.

This has made a great difference to my life to be without so much pain.

Thank you very much."



Treatment Sessions

Your first treatment session will be a Traditional Diagnosis. This is a double appointment and enables us to discuss and fully assess your case.

Most patients are then asked to come for a further 6 weekly treatments.

Following this we will reassess your case and advise you on further treatment according to your individual needs. Quite often patients choose to continue with further treatment to maintain their health.

What to expect from treatment

The acupuncturist will select a number of acupuncture points at various sites on the body.

When the needles are inserted and stimulated the sensation felt is often described as a tingling or dull ache which lasts only a few seconds.

Depending on the location of the points and the condition being treated, some patients feel very little when the needles are inserted.

The needles may then be left in place for up to 15 minutes. During this time patients commonly experience a pleasant feeling of relaxation.


Acupuncture is considered to be very safe form of treatment and can be used in conjunction with conventional medical treatment.
