According to traditional Chinese philosophy, health is dependent on the smooth flow of energy through the body. Energy can become blocked for various reasons including, anxiety, anger, grief, poor diet, infection, trauma and hereditary factors. When energy becomes blocked or out of balance, ill health develops.
Traditional Chinese acupuncture treatment is focused upon re-establishing the normal circulation of energy to support the individual towards improved health. The acupuncturist takes a holistic approach and seeks to determine and treat the root cause of illness. Acupuncture is a safe, gentle treatment with a long established history.
Traditional acupuncturists have completed 3 years of training and members of the Acupuncture Society are committed to continual professional development and professional standards. .
A growing body of evidence-based clinical research shows that traditional acupuncture safely treats a wide range of common health problems and can be very effective for pain relief and in the treatment of stress and anxiety. Many people choose acupuncture because it helps them to feel more relaxed and healthy.
We also offer cosmetic acupuncture and treatment for fertility and pregnancy.
