What is it?
Acupuncture is a system of healing which has been practised in China and other Eastern countries for thousands of years.
Although often described as a means of pain relief, acupuncture is used to treat people with a wide range of illnesses including gynaecological problems, headaches/migraines, and allergies such as hay fever, with a focus on improving the overall wellbeing of the patient. Chinese Medicine can also support people experiencing emotional and/or life-changing situations.
What to expect
You will receive an in depth assessment aimed at establishing both your physical and emotional wellbeing. A treatment programme is then devised to address these issues holistically and will usually involve a combination of acupuncture (use of fine needles) and acupressure (applied with the fingers and thumbs). If you have not experienced acupuncture before and are anxious about the use of needles, Sally will guide you gently through the process, applying the technique in areas where you won’t feel discomfort so that you become comfortable with the process. Your first visit will take 2 hours with subsequent visits lasting 1 ¼ hours.
