Why have acupuncture?
Many people use acupuncture to help with certain health challenges and conditions. Others choose acupuncture as a preventive measure to strengthen their constitution or because they just feel generally unwell.
Acupuncture is considered suitable for all ages including babies, children and the elderly. It can also be integrated with Western medicine. Most acupuncturists have extensive understanding of modern medicine.

How big are the needles and does it hurt?
The needles are single use sterilized micro thin purpose made and are inserted into specific points of the body. Some points are more tender than others and I will always warn if I am going to use those points.
Many patients feel a slight sensation on needle insertion which passes soon after as the energy moves.
Can the cost of treatment be covered by my medical insurance?
That depends on the insurer. It is best to go to them and ask, some may ask for referral from the GP.
Most insurers will pay out to members of the British Acupuncture Council and therefore if your insurer will cover the cost of treatment coming to see me will be covered.
