Acupuncture

Considered to be one of the most popular in the natural healthcare sector, Acupuncture is an ever growing method used to treat conditions with no drugs, surgeries or non-natural methods.

Acupuncture has been shown to treat patients with a wide range of conditions. This is found to be a thriving approach to healthcare as a holistic and organic alternative to the treatment of disease and illness, linking body, mind and emotions. 

Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles into specific sites along the body’s meridians to clear energy blockages and to encourage the normal flow of energy (qi) through the body. The needles then stimulate the nervous system to kick-start the body into correcting the internal imbalance caused by the condition. Often coupled with Herbal Medicine, this encourages the healing process to ensure your wellbeing. Alternatively, the practitioner can stimulate points using other methods: cupping, laser therapy, electro-stimulation and massage for those not fond of needles. 

Our doctors can help you achieve complete physical health and mental wellbeing with professional and tailored care. We understand what makes a body function correctly, and are able to restore any body back to its normal state and optimum wellbeing, correcting imbalances and removing toxicities and imperfections. Using effective needling techniques, we target the central nervous system – the brain and spinal cord – which is responsible for cognition, emotions and fluid movement. Therefore, acupuncture can be utillised in the treatments of Musculoskeletal/injury conditions, fertility, digestion, weight loss, skin conditions and various other ailments. 

Often, Acupuncture is used to support aspiring mother’s to assist in the conception of their child. Fertility support is available through many our careful planning and treatment in order to create a stress-free and safe conception and post natal period. Our family planning treatments create balance in the body using a lifestyle plan, raising endorphin levels and reducing stress for pre- and post-natal happiness, as well as health during your pregnancy. 

We are dedicated to providing you with the most specialised medical care to support and provide you with the best hollistic care possible. For an individualised approach to your healthcare needs and balanced wellbeing, contact our doctors in our Strathmore Clinic.

Does it hurt?

No. The needles used in acupuncture treatments are completely safe and are designed in order for your treatment to be as painless as possible. Our priority is your safety and comfort, so at any point you feel too much pain or discomfort, we can adjust our approach or cease treatment entirely.

What does it feel like?

When the needle enters your skin, you might feel a momentary light sting, but after that it’s mainly painless other than a dull sensation in the local area.

Is it safe?

Its completely safe. Each needle is a one use needle and are individually packaged in order to keep sterility. The area needled is often swabbed to prevent infections.
