Traditional acupuncture


Many people come to acupuncture for help with specific symptoms or conditions. Others choose it as a preventative measure to strengthen their constitution, or because they just feel generally unwell. It can be used alongside conventional medicine in the treatment of both acute and chronic disease. As with any therapy, the response to acupuncture can vary from one person to another.

Some conditions which can be treated;

  • Anxiety and Stress
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Back pain
  • Colitis
  • Circulatory problems
  • Depression
  • Facial paralysis
  • Fibrosis
  • General aches and pain
  • Hayfever
  • Headaches including migraines
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Indeterminate aches and pains
  • Infertility
  • Menstrual problems
  • Respiratory problems
  • Rheumatism
  • Sciatica
  • Skin conditions
  • Stomach problems (including IBS)
  • Ulcers
  • Weight issues
  • Plus many more, the list is endless.

Acupuncture is a safe treatment for all. It has proved to be effective in pregnancy management and for the relief of pain in childbirth. It is also helpful for people trying to overcome addictions such as those related to smoking, alcohol and drugs.
