Can Acupuncture Help Me?

wendy4As an acupuncture practitioner I spend time working with every patient as an individual, not a set of symptoms, and the simple way to find out whether acupuncture can help you is to ring me or come in for a free fifteen minute chat about your circumstances. I love my work and I’m always happy to talk to or meet with prospective patients and I find it helps many people to meet me face to face first to know whether I feel the right practitioner for you. Please feel free to ring me on 0770 3730499, if I’m with a patient the answer phone will be on, but please don’t let that put you off, just leave me a message and I’ll call you back as soon as possible.

Some people turn to acupuncture for help with a specific symptom or condition. Others choose to have treatment to help maintain good health, as a preventive measure, or simply to improve their general sense of wellbeing. Because traditional acupuncture aims to treat the whole person rather than specific symptoms in isolation, it can be effective for a range of conditions.

Acupuncture treats the whole person, not just a specific symptom, and aims to bring balance to body, mind and spirit as an integrated whole. Treatment is aimed at the root of your condition as well as your main symptoms and this approach helps with resolving your problem and enhancing your feeling of wellbeing. Many patients also notice that other niggling problems also resolve as your main health complaint improves. Because I treat the person, not just the condition which they have, each patient’s treatment plan is different but you can always ask me about other patients’ experiences, to give you an idea of what to expect. Many of my patients return to acupuncture again and again because they find it so beneficial and relaxing.

Although our study is grounded in traditional acupuncture, all acupuncturists also receive training in Western medical sciences which allows us to recognise a situation where problems are best dealt with by, or in conjunction with, Western medicine. And I also have many years experience as a nurse. You need have no fear that ‘something serious’ will be missed if you decide to come for acupuncture treatment.
