Acupuncture-like techniques have been used all around the world for over 5000 years. Acupuncture is a treatment that can relieve symptoms of some physical and psychological conditions and may
encourage the body to repair and heal itself.
Acupuncture uses fine needles to stimulate the nerves in skin and muscles. It increases the body's release of natural painkillers - endorphins and serotonin and can help relieve pain. It also has a beneficial effect on health and patients often notice an improved sense of well-being after treatment.
Acupuncture is generally safer than most conventional treatments, but if used without due care, it can have serious adverse effects and interactions with other treatments. Acupuncture should only be used by trained therapists who can adequately assess the risks and benefits of therapy.
Initial consultation and treatment: £80
