Acupuncture originated in China and other far eastern cultures and is now widely used and accepted all over the world. In the UK more and more people are finding out what acupuncture can do for them.

Acupuncture can be effective for a wide range of painful conditions including early persistent non-specific lower back pain, osteoarthritis of the knee and tension-type headaches. It has also been proven to be effective for illnesses such as dental pain, nausea and vomiting. In 2009 the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommended that acupuncture should be made available on the NHS, as a cost-effective short-term treatment for the management of early, persistent non-specific lower back pain. Often, people use acupuncture because they feel generally
tired and unwell but have no obvious Western Medical diagnosis.

Because traditional acupuncture aims to treat the whole person rather than specific symptoms in isolation, it can be effective for a range of conditions. Many people return to acupuncture again and again because they find it so beneficial and relaxing. Acupuncture often leaves people with a sense of wellbeing and calmness after a treatment.The first session involves a full consultation, diagnosis and the first treatment. This takes up to an hour and a half. Treatment thereafter is 1 hour. Normally 6-8 treatments are recommended for you to see a lasting change in your condition, this is discussed on an individual basis.
