Acupuncture works to help maintain our body’s equilibrium. Acupuncture involves the use of very fine needles on specific points of the body to regulate the flow of ‘qi’ (sometimes translated as energy) in the body. For a variety of reasons the ‘qi’, can become unbalanced, which can result in symptoms such as pain and illness. Traditional acupuncture can be an effective therapy to restore balance and promote physical and emotional harmony.
Treatment is aimed at the root of the condition, as well as the symptoms. This approach helps to both resolve the problem and enhance feelings of well-being. You may notice other niggling conditions also resolve as your health improves.
Acupuncture originated in China and is common in far eastern cultures, where it still features in mainstream health care and acupuncture is now widely accepted and used all over the world – and in the UK more and more people are finding out what acupuncture can do for them.

Acupuncture is also suitable for children and in my practice, children are frequently treated – they do not necessarily need to have needles as there are other ways of treating children without the use of needles.
Acupuncture in London can help with specific symptoms or conditions. It can also help health maintenance and can be used as a preventative measure to maintain well being.
In 2009 the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommended that acupuncture be made available on the NHS as a cost effective short term treatment for the management of early persistent non-specific lower back pain.

Herbs: these are used either as a stand-alone therapy or in conjunction with acupuncture. They are prescribed using powders or granules in a pre-prepared form so no cooking required!
