Acupuncture is a system of healing which has been practised in China and other Eastern countries for thousands of years. Although often described as a means of pain relief, it is in fact used to treat people with a wide range of illnesses. Its focus is on improving the overall well being of the patient rather than the isolated treatment of specific symptoms, by bringing the body, emotions and spirit into a harmonious balance.
Many people come to acupuncture for help with specific symptoms or conditions. These might include anxiety states, depression, arthritis, rheumatism, sciatica, back pain, various aches and pains, circulatory problems, asthma, facial paralysis, infertility or menstrual problems. Acupuncture is also helpful for people trying to overcome addictions such as those related to smoking, alcohol, or food. It may also help with stroke or other chronic illness, especially in the early stages. Many other conditions can be treated successfully treated and some people find acupuncture helpful as a preventative therapy.
High standards of hygiene are always observed in this practice. All the needles are sterile and are used once only. This provides protection against the transmission of infectious diseases.
