Acupuncture is a tried and tested system of complementary medicine which has been used to restore, promote and maintain good health for thousands of years. Acupuncture can help with a range of specific illnesses and symptoms as well as treating more general feelings of ill health such as tiredness and low energy. It helps to strengthen the immune system and improves blood circulation.
Acupuncture is often used in conjunction with other therapies, especially physical therapy and alongside conventional western medicine to promote optimum health and well being.
Some of the conditions for which acupuncture is appropriate include: Headaches; Menstrual Problems & Symptoms of the menopause; Backache; Arthritis; Nausea/Vomiting; Anxiety; Depression; Digestive problems; Insomnia; Asthma; though there are many more.
Treatments are generally given weekly to begin with and then less frequently depending on the condition and response to treatment. Five or six treatments are often needed before improvements are significant especially if the condition has been longstanding.
Some addictions such as smoking can also be treated though a complete desire to give up is required if treatment is to be effective.
