Acupuncture is an ancient practice dating back 2,000-3,000 years. Acupuncture uses very fine single-use sterilised needles which are finer than a hair. I use especially fine needles in my practice to ensure the needles don’t feel painful. There are a number of different styles of acupuncture and I practice Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). TCM can be used to treat a variety of health conditions. Please contact me to find out how it can help you.
A consultation will assess all areas of your health and wellbeing to build up an overall understanding of your health.
