What does treatment involve?

Treatment involves the insertion of very fine, sterile, disposable and single-use needles into points along channels throughout the body. Often just a few needles may be inserted with powerful results.
On insertion of needles you may feel a slight ‘tingling’, a ‘spreading sensation’ or a dull ache.

Frequency of treatments will depend upon the individual and the condition treated. Sometimes just one or two treatments are needed. Generally, five or six treatments are required. Other patients may need longer term treatment. Many patients feel so much better after having acupuncture that they take on board the Chinese medicine approach to ‘prevention being better than cure’ and like to come for regular monthly or six-weekly treatments to promote continued well-being.
