How can Acupuncture help me?

Acupuncture benefits

Acupuncture benefits are extensive

By working naturally to restore and maintain health for all ages, acupuncture benefits a huge range of issues such as back ache, muscular injuries and strains, insomnia, migraine, arthritis and IBS to name just a few. Hormonal problems such as PMT, an irregular cycle or menopausal symptoms can be addressed.

Expectant mums can expect benefits throughout their pregnancies, keeping them strong and working with any issues such as morning sickness. Treatments are available to prepare for and during labour. The therapy can be used for aiding fertility naturally and alongside IVF.

It is brilliant for children of any age too! Do check it out to help with such problems as those persistent colds and infections, infant colic, earache, tummy upsets or eczema. Not that you have to be ill…. seasonal preventative treatments are a great way to keep you and your children healthy.

A Natural Approach

The Ancient Chinese knew that change of season is a great time to pay particular attention to our health. As the energy of the season shifts we need to be ready and able to adjust with ease. Acupuncture can enable us to protect and restore our well­being.

Having been an acupuncturist for over 25 years now Sue just loves this truly holistic approach to health. She finds it most beneficial to be able to treat the whole person rather than just the disease and to work with the cause of the problem as well as the symptoms. And with no unwanted side effects!
