Benefits of Acupunture

Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years; more and more people are enjoying this natural way to improve their health.   Acupuncture is endorsed by the NHS for chronic lower back pain, chronic tension-type headaches and migraines.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Acupuncture is widely considered to be beneficial for a range of illnesses and symptoms, from clearly defined to more general feelings of ill health and low energy.  Many people use acupuncturee to help with a specific symptom, pain or condition, others choose it to help maintain good health or just to improve their sense of well being.

When people try acupuncture for the first time, they're typically surprised by the fact it doesn't hurt as the needles are hair fine. Many people report that the process is either energizing or immensely relaxing.

The treatment focus is on the individual and all symptoms are seen in relation to each other. Each patient is unique.
