HOW CAN ACUPUNCTURE HELP YOU?
With acupuncture I treat you as a whole person, not just symptoms you are experiencing. Patients come with a diverse range of conditions such as, migraine, arthritis, headache, sciatica, frozen shoulder, muscular/ skeletal problems, digestive disorders, anxiety, depression etc. As well as the symptoms lessening after an initial treatment, patients often express that they "just feel better in themselves".
I also work with cancer patients, supporting them through chemo and radiotherapy and as palliative care.
Please take a look at the fact sheets on the British Acupuncture Councils Website to see research into what conditions acupuncture can help.
NICE (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence) has recommended that acupuncture be made available on the NHS for chronic lower back pain. Please see fact sheet on back pain and sciatica.
