Acupuncture: Stacey Cox BSc MBAcC & Nicola Rawstron Msc, BSc, MBAcC
Acupuncture is one of the longest established forms of healthcare in the world. Acupuncturists are trained to use subtle diagnostic techniques that have been developed and refined for thousands of years. The focus is on you as an individual, not your illness, and all symptoms are seen in relation to each other. Treatment involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body to affect the flow of your body’s qi, or vital energy.
Acupuncture can treat a wide variety of conditions such as backache, migraine, stress, and anxiety. It is also helpful for a range of gynaecological and obstetric problems including working in partnership to improve IVF outcomes.
Acupressure massage, cupping and moxibustion may also be used during treatment and offered as an alternative to needles.
We also offer specialised facial (cosmetic) acupuncture, which is a treatment used to improve skin and fight the process. Sometimes referred to as an “acupuncture facelift” or “facial rejuvenation,” cosmetic acupuncture is often used as an alternative to surgical facelifts and other conventional procedures said to reverse signs of aging in the skin.
