How does it work?

Overwork, stress, physical and emotional trauma, infections, disease and unhealthy lifestyle choices can all upset our natural balance. When this occurs we can experience illness and injury. By using fine needles in acupuncture points on the body it is possible to stimulate and reinstate natural balance and health.

Acupuncture is great for pain, sports injuries, headaches, PMT, menopausal problems, digestive disorders, anxiety, depression, tiredness and common problems that doctors just can’t put their finger on. The British Acupuncture council The British Acupuncture Council compiles and provides all the latest research and evidence-based facts on acupuncture. It currently lists over 30 different health conditions which acupuncture can treat. See the evidence page for further details.
