What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture has been extensively used for over 2000 years and has a growing body of evidence-based research discovering its benefits for a wide range of health conditions. It is recognised by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence and the World Health Organisation as being an effective treatment.
It is drug free, pain free, non-invasive treatment that encourages the body to heal itself by stimulating internal resources such as pain relief, anti-inflammatories, and hormones.
The diagnostic process establishes the cause of the problem, and the treatment plan restores overall balance to resolved issues and maintain a health body and mind.
