"I do feel acupuncture has been one of the keys to my success in overcoming anxiety. Thank you Helen!"
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture stimulates the body's healing energy by the insertion of very fine needles into acupuncture points on the body (nothing like those experienced during vaccinations/blood tests!). The needles are sterile one-use needles and most people experience only a slight dull sensation following needle insertion.
Who has Acupuncture?
Because Traditional Acupuncture aims to treat the whole person, rather than specific symptoms in isolation, it can be effective for a range of conditions. Treatment is aimed at the root cause of your condition as well as your main symptoms. This approach helps with resolving your problems and enhancing your feelings of wellbeing. You may notice other niggling problems resolve as your health improves.
What Can I Expect?
A thorough initial consultation and observation is carried out at your first treatment (60-75 mins.) with subsequent treatments lasting approximately 45 minutes. Needles are in place for 20 minutes during each treatment.
Most people experience sensations of relaxation and well-being during and after treatment. Typically people notice a lessening of their symptoms between treatments and rate of progress/resolution varies with the individual, their condition and lifestyle.
