Traditional Acupuncture is a complete system of diagnosis and treatment of human illness and as such is used to treat a very wide range of health conditions, too many to list. If you are unsure whether it might be able to help you then please give me a ring on 02920 140054 for an informal chat. If Acupuncture would not be helpful, I can normally suggest another reliable professional practitioner in the area who might be able to help.

As well as physical health benefits Acupuncture treatment also helps people feel better in themselves, so my clients often report more personal effects like feeling more energised, content, confident,  relaxed etc

Acupuncture works by stimulating the body’s own natural tendency to heal itself and stay in balance and so affects all aspects of a person, for this reason any list of conditions treated is incomplete;  the following link gives the results of a 2003 review by the World Health Organisation of formal scientific research into Acupuncture. While it doesn’t cover all bases I think it does  give a good flavour of how Acupuncture treats all aspects of individual health so you might find it useful.

Common areas for which Acupuncture is commonly used are (but not limited to):

  • women’s health
  • reducing sensations of pain
  • helping with  health challenges that come with advancing age
  • helping with injuries to joints and muscles
  • feeling more energised
  • coping better with emotions or stress
  • digestive issues
  • gentle, drug free, treatment for children or babies

Of course, just like every form of medicine, Acupuncture cannot help everyone or everything so if you are not sure whether Acupuncture could help you then just give me a call on 029 2014 0054 to have an informal chat.
