Acupuncture treatment is often sought by people who are experiencing specific pains or symptoms for example osteoarthritis of the knee, or in a more general way to maintain good health or for continued wellbeing.
Traditional acupuncture aims to treat the whole person rather than their symptoms therefore making it effective for a range if conditions.
It has a long history of being considered safe and suitable treatment for all ages and can be safely and reliably used alongside other therapies and conventional medicine.
Practitioners of acupuncture use many diagnostic skills including pulse taking and examination of the tongue along with medical history and lifestyle in order to prepare a treatment plan tailored to each individual person.
Needles are very fine, single use, sterile and disposable.
