Acupuncture is a system of healing that has been practised for over 2,500 years in China. Acupuncture is a gentle and effective treatment that focuses on helping the whole person, aiming to improve their overall health and wellbeing, and today it is widely used and accepted all over the world.

The First Acupuncture Treatment

During the first acupuncture treatment the practitioner will take a full medical case history, including past health background and details about the patient’s current condition. Once the patient is settled on the treatment couch, the practitioner will take their pulses on each wrist and look at their tongue.

The practitioner will then make a diagnosis and put together a treatment plan which may include lifestyle and dietary advice as well as acupuncture.

Combined Techniques

As well as inserting fine needles just under the skin, a practitioner may also use other techniques, such as cupping, in which  small glass cups are used to massage the skin and massage. Most people find acupuncture relaxing and often feel very calm after a treatment.
