Both Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine have been used successfully for many thousands of years in the treatment of a wide range of conditions. By inserting a number of very fine needles (hair-thin) into specific points along a system of energy pathways or meridians, the acupuncturist endeavors to restore balance on every level. Because acupuncture works on the whole body, change can be generated emotionally as well as physically. After talking an extensive case history, the practitioner will decide on the most appropriate course of treatment. This may be acupuncture alone or may incorporate Chinese Herbal Medicine, the use of moxibustion (the warming of acupuncture points using the herb Artemisia), tui-na (massage), dietary or lifestyle advice and perhaps the recommendation of gentle exercises. A course of treatment is generally considered to be between 8-10 treatments. Some conditions will benefit in fewer than this and long term problems could be expected to require more.
Usually no more than 6-10 needles are used in each treatment.
The needles stay in place for about 20 minutes.
There is no age limit for treatment - everyone from babies to the elderly may benefit.
Most people are surprised at how painless acupuncture can be.
