What is acupuncture?
Originating in China in the 1st century AD, the use of acupuncture to treat pain is supported by a growing body of scientific evidence. The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence have recommended that acupuncture should be available as a cost-effective short term treatment for persistent non-specific low back pain.
Needles may be inserted:
- Near to or around the painful area
- Away from the painful area
- On the opposite side of the body
What does acupuncture involve?
Acupuncture uses sterile, single use needles to stimulate the body’s pain relief mechanisms. Acupuncture should not be uncomfortable, although some people experience a brief pinprick or scratching sensation.
How many treatments will I need?
The number and frequency of acupuncture treatments is dependent on the condition being treated and your individual response to the treatment. For chronic, painful conditions, a series of six to eight treatments is usually required to achieve optimum results.
We always work one-to-one.
