How Does Acupuncture Work?

Women today face so many different demands that our natural rhythms are being disrupted. Acupuncture can restore health and promote a sense of well-being. It is now widely recognised in the West as a safe and effective medicine.

The essence of acupuncture is to treat each patient as an individual and re-establish a healthy balance in the body, mind and spirit by moving the vital energy Qi (pronounced ‘chi’).

I study the patient’s outward symptoms, take an in-depth case history and use traditional Chinese diagnosis, including taking the 12 energy pulses on the wrists and and studying the tongue to ascertain underlying health. I always aim for the session to be a pleasant and nurturing experience. I choose extra-fine disposable needles for the comfort of my patients and many remark on my gentle technique.
