Today, acupuncture is most often thought of primarily for pain relief, but it helps with many other conditions such as:
- Digestive Problems
- Anxiety, stress, eating disorders, depression, addiction
- Menstrual and menopausal disorders
- Labour induction and pregnancy discomforts
- Fertility including IVF support
- Migraines and headaches
- Skin conditions
- Chronic fatigue and insomnia
Its focus is on improving the overall well being of the patient, not the isolated treatment of specific symptoms.
We will assess your general state of health to identify the underlying pattern of disharmony and give you the most effective treatment. We will talk about your current symptoms, medical history and relevant family history to get a full picture before deciding on treatment.
During your first visit we will discuss an overall plan of treatment, you can rest assured that everything we go through will be confidential and you can ask any questions before, during and after your treatment.
Some patients may have unfounded anxiety about receiving acupuncture treatment. The main question is ‘Does it hurt?’ and the emphatic answer is no! We will ensure that during your treatment you always feel comfortable and at ease. Many people find that acupuncture leads to increased energy levels, better appetite and sleep as well as an enhanced sense of overall well being.
The length of a course of acupuncture treatment is difficult to determine in advance. We schedule a review of your progress after your 5th or 6th session to allow sufficient time for individuality in treatment response and to check for improvement.
