What is it?
Acupuncture is a healthcare system originating over two thousand years ago. Its model views illness of all types as an indication that the body’s energy is out of balance - the goal of treatment is to bring health by restoring equilibrium
Viewing the physical, mental and emotional as interdependent, acupuncture focuses on the individual rather than their illness. Treatment is therefore tailored to the patient - two patients with the same western diagnosis may receive entirely different acupuncture treatment
is it safe?
Acupuncture is one of the safest medical treatments available in the UK today. The treatment involves only pre-sterilised single-use needles which are safely disposed of after your treatment
