Acupuncture – Traditional Chinese Medicine
Acupuncture is a safe way to maintain or regain your health.
Traditional acupuncture is a form of healthcare dating back thousands of years. An acupuncturist fully trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine can treat a myriad of health conditions because acupuncture stimulates the body’s own healing responses, often by making a change in biochemistry.
There is a growing body of research to show this effectiveness. The British Acupuncture Council have produced factsheets containing information for specific conditions which can be found here
Your first treatment will be around an hour and twenty minutes. Jane will take a detailed history of your health and identify imbalances within your body. In most cases, she will also take your pulse and look at your tongue. Together, these allow her to make a diagnosis and develop a unique treatment plan for you.
Acupuncture points are stimulated using sterile single use needles. You may be aware of a mild sensation, such as a dull ache, when the needles are inserted, but treatment is usually pain free. Once the needles are in you can relax on the couch. Many people fall asleep.
Follow on treatments last between 45 and 60 minutes.
