Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a long-established  system of healthcare for body and mind 


It is NICE-approved for help with chronic pain, headaches and migraines, and commonly used to treat musculoskeletal (joint and bone) conditions in addition to physical and emotional health issues of many kinds. 


Members of the team have a range of specialist interests including womens' health, fertility, pregnancy & childbirth, digestive health, pain and injuries, skin issues, addictions including smoking cessation, and the support of chronic long-term health issues amongst others.


All of the Centre's practitioners are regulated healthcare professionals with very extensive training and experience. As a team, they offer a broad range of approaches including Traditional Chinese, Five Element, medical acupuncture and Shonishin (needleless acupuncture often used for children).


Some members of the team combine acupuncture with Tuina (traditional Chinese massage) and Traditional Chinese Herbs, together with techniques such as cupping and moxibustion.

Acupuncture & Tuina

Acupuncture addresses the underlying energetic imbalances that lie within each of us – these imbalance can be on an emotional, mental or physical level, and can create tendencies towards a range of disease and symptoms.


Qi is the life force which flows through the body’s energy system (meridians), and it should ideally move in a smooth continuous flow through these channels. Where the flow of Qi is impeded or stagnant - whether from stress, diet or lifestyle factors  - pain and dysfunction start to manifest, in symptoms as diverse as migraines, PMT, back pain or skin disorders, as well as emotional imbalance and energetic depletion. For a more comprhensive list of conditions that can be helped by acupuncture, please read more Here.


By removing blockages and balancing a person’s energy we can encourage the more efficient function of the various cycles that exist in our body, such as breathing, digestion, circulation, hormones and sleep. When these cycles are working closer to their optimum, symptoms tend to abate, and our overall sense of wellbeing and mood improves alongside this.


Acupuncture addresses the underlying imbalances by using very gentle and often completely painless needling techniques to prompt the person’s healing ability towards better health. It is particularly useful for sensitive patients. 


Some of our practitioners also practice needle-less acupuncture, which is especially suited to babies, children, and patients with a fear of needles.
