Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine sterile needles, it is typically pain free and clients report feeling very relaxed during and after a session. It encourages the body to uses its own natural ability to self-regulate and heal. Acupuncture has been shown to reduce pain, inflammation, balance hormones, improve blood flow and reduce stress. It can help to modulate the immune system, increase energy levels  and promote wellbeing.

Many people come to Acupuncture for help with a condition or specific symptoms. Some because they feel generally unwell but have no clear diagnosis. Others simply to enhance their feeling of wellbeing and maintain good health. Traditional Acupuncture looks at the whole person rather than specific symptoms in isolation.

Acupuncture has a history extending over thousands of years and is increasingly supported by modern science and recognised as a go to natural therapy for the modern world.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommended that Acupuncture should be made available on the NHS for lower back pain.

Chinese Herbal Medicine

Chinese herbal medicine has been an important part of the healthcare system in Asia for thousands of years becoming increasingly popular in the West.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is used to describe the complete system of medicine that has been developed and refined over a long period of time. It is the world’s oldest continually practiced professional medical system with detailed textbooks stretching back across almost 2500 years.

TCM primarily includes Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine but can also involve dietary recommendations, massage and heat treatment called moxibustion all of which are available at the clinic.

Chinese Herbal Medicine has a wide clinical use. It is often good at helping complex conditions which have otherwise proven difficult or those that are slow to respond to other interventions. A consultation will determine whether herbal medicines are suitable for taking alongside Acupuncture or alone in their own right.

Following a thorough consultation, a prescription of herbs tailored to individual need is written. Chinese herbs often come in the form of a powder which is taken as a drink.

All products are herbal and from nationally accredited suppliers. They are of the highest quality, 100% non-sulphur treated and sourced from Good Agricultural Practice (GAP) certified fields and Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) factories. Each batch of herbs is traceable to source and comes with a certificate of analysis, which show levels of active ingredient, pesticide residue, heavy metals and microbiology.
