What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese therapy that has over 3,000 years of history. In China, acupuncture is practised alongside western medicine and doctors of both disciplines often cross-refer patients to obtain the optimum treatment results.

Next Steps to Helping You

If you are suffering from any illnesses or symptoms and would like to experience the benefits of traditional acupuncture treatment, please get in touch for an initial consultation which includes a full diagnosis of your condition and assessment of your medical history, based on which a comprehensive treatment plan can be drawn up. The initial consultation usually lasts approximately 1 hour and may include a short treatment. Follow up acupuncture treatment sessions to implement the treatment plan will take up to 30 minutes.
