I will guide you through a thorough consultation, together with pulse diagnosis and assessment of your tongue. This allows me to identify your individual underlying patterns of disharmony and design a personalised treatment plan. Using this plan, I insert very fine needles to stimulate your body’s own healing response, helping to restore a natural balance.
Clinical research continues to demonstrate the effectiveness of traditional acupuncture in treating a wide range of conditions. Acupuncture is as much about the maintenance of health as the management of disease, and the benefits frequently go beyond relieving one particular condition. Many people find that it can also lead to an enhanced sense of overall wellbeing and vitality.
Acupuncture is a system of healing based on over 2,500 years of development and refinement in the Far East. According to traditional Chinese philosophy, our health is dependent on the body’s motivating energy – known as qi – moving in a smooth and balanced way through a series of meridians (channels) beneath the skin. The flow of qi can be disturbed by many physical, mental and emotional factors.
