About Acupuncture

Traditional Five Element Acupuncture is based on the ancient classics. It is a holistic system that treats the whole body physically mentally and emotionally. It is a system of healing that has been practised for many years.People sometimes consider acupuncture for pain relief but the benefits can be far more. Acupuncture can be beneficial for a number of conditions including migraine, anxiety, sleep disturbance, arthritic conditions, fatigue, back pain and anxiety. This ancient system of healing is used to treat a wide range of symptoms that cause disruption in the harmony of the body, mind or spirit. It helps a feeling of overall well being.

With traditional acupuncture we don’t focus specifically on the symptoms although the symptoms presenting will be taken into account, we look at the whole person as a unique individual. The first acupuncture session is known as a Traditional Diagnosis (T.D.) and will take between one and a half to two hours. The aim is to assess your general state of health. We will discuss with you your reason for treatment, your medical history, family history, lifestyle, energy levels and any medication that you might be taking. Each treatment is designed specifically for each individual.

If you are considering acupuncture treatment and would like to discuss treatment please call us, we are more than happy to talk to you on the phone or in person.
