Acupuncture

Acupuncture is one of the most well researched and widely used complementary therapies in Europe and is used by a wide range of healthcare professionals including doctors, nurses, midwives and physiotherapists.

Fine, sterilised needles are inserted into carefully selected acupuncture points on the body. Their placement depends on detailed and subtle diagnosis unique to the condition of each individual and aims to trigger and support the body's natural healing processes.

Acupuncture is an effective treatment for many medical conditions including back pain, sports injuries, insomnia, anxiety, infertility, menstrual problems, fibroids, ovarian cysts, IBS and digestive disorders.
