The Healing Power of Acupuncture

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine is a 2,500-year-old system rooted in the healing powers of the natural world.  It is a safe and drug free way to treat many conditions and is tailored to each patient based on their nature of the concern. 

Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to treat common issues such as chronic pain, acute injuries, repetitive strain, digestive disorders, headaches, menstrual difficulties, allergies, insomnia, respiratory problems, immune support, poor circulation, and emotional imbalances (plus much more!).

What Can You Expect to Feel?

More energy and focus, better sleep, less anxiety, reduced pain, a more effective digestive system and balanced hormones.

These are just some of the things that I help my clients to achieve in addition to the primary focus of your treatment. Another aspect of acupuncture is the "positive side effects” so not only can I help you manage the symptoms you came in with, but it's likely you’ll also notice improvements in other aspects of your overall health. The beauty of holistic therapies (such as acupuncture) is that they treat the whole person and not just the presenting symptom.

Why Is Acupuncture So Popular?

Acupuncture Is Safe

Acupuncture is proven to be one of the safest therapies available, used by millions of people all over the world for centuries with virtually no side-effects. I use sterile, single-use, disposable needles.

Acupuncture is Effective

One of the oldest and most widely used forms of medicine, Acupuncture has stood the test of time. It is effective for a wide range of health conditions and has been increasingly incorporated into the NHS and other healthcare modalities such as physiotherapy and osteopathy.

Acupuncture is Natural

Acupuncture harnesses and amplifies your body’s inbuilt healing power and resources. Your body is amazing and can heal itself from a vast array of illness and disease. Unfortunately, the body can sometimes forget how to do this effectively and you become unwell. Acupuncture reminds your body what it needs to do to regain balance and wellness.

It Feels Good!

Acupuncture is one of the most relaxing therapies you can experience! 

Acupuncture heals your body naturally. Here are just a few ways acupuncture can help you:

Pain Management

Alleviate acute and chronic pain without drugs or side-effects. I help patients move out of pain by treating the root of the problem and offering a natural therapy that restores optimal function and allows the body to heal. 

Hormonal Health, Prenatal & Postnatal Care

Acupuncture is a natural therapy for PMS, cramps, menstrual irregularities, PCOS, infertility, prenatal care, postnatal care and pregnancy complaints.

Anxiety, Depression & Mental Health

Acupuncture can provide you with a drug-free solution to your anxiety, depression, stress or cognitive decline.

Digestive Health

Resolve your gut issues naturally. Find relief from gas and bloating, IBS, Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and heartburn or acid reflux. Focusing on your digestion can also lead to a boost in your immune system and help with symptoms of chronic fatigue. I have a particular interest in treating patients with long-term (and short-term) digestive complaints.

If you have any questions or are unsure if acupuncture is right for you, please consider a free consultation by whatever method is most convenient for you. I’m available in-person, by phone, online (Zoom) or by email. This will allow me to learn more about your symptoms and assess whether acupuncture is going to be an effective treatment for you.
