The purpose of acupuncture is to treat disease, regulate the systems of the body to restore balance, and strengthen the body to prevent future illness.
Treatment is aimed at the root cause of a condition as well as your main symptoms. This helps to resolve the immediate problem and enhance your overall health and well being.
Some people turn to acupuncture for help with a specific symptom or condition such as nausea, neck pain or osteoarthritis of the knee, while others have ongoing treatment to maintain good health.
As acupuncture aims to treat the whole person and not just the symptom, it can be effective for a range of conditions, either in isolation or alongside biomedical treatment.
The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommends acupuncture for lower back pain, migraine and headaches, and the World Health Organisation endorses it as an effective treatment for many common diseases and disorders.Book an appointment
