Acupuncture

What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture originated in China and other far eastern cultures, it is an ancient system of medicine that was discovered over 2000 years ago. It began with the discovery that stimulation of certain areas of the body had a positive effect on specific functioning of the organs. This discovery evolved over time into a system of healing that we know today as Acupuncture.

Fine, pre steralised, single use needles are inserted intocarefully chosen Acupuncture Points that stimulate thebodies own healing response. The treatment focuses on the individual not just the presenting disease or symptom. This healing system can treat a huge variety of conditions and many people come for preventative treatment Acupuncture is aimed at maintaining good health and patients frequently notice an enhanced feeling of wellbeing.

What can acupuncture treat?

Acupuncture treatment does more than just relieve the physical symptoms. The greatest strength of Traditional acupuncture is that it focuses on all the factors that contribute and influence the pain and/or illness, not just the presenting symptoms. The focus of treatment is the individual and not their illness. Each patient is unique, and so two patients with the same western diagnosis may well recieve different acupuncture treatments. Consequently traditional acupuncture does not fit neatly into the research protocols and that have been developed in response to symptom based treatments.

As of March 2011 the Advertising Standards Authority decided that only conditions that can be claimed to be benefitted by acupuncture are those backed up by RCTs. However I can provide links to a broader sprectrum of research, by following the links below you will be able to find out how acupuncture may help you.

The British Acupuncture Council has summarized the research that is currently available and has provided this information in the form of Fact Sheets and Review Papers.

Testimonials

  • "I have used Andrea for a number of years, working on me and my horse to optimise performance individually and together. I can thoroughly recommend her for her total commitment and caring treatment for both of us, which always works!"

  • "I have had monthly treatments with Andrea for over ten years after a back operation. These not only help enormously in reducing pain and improving my mobility but Andreas regular advice has proved invaluable. She is highly professional, extremely knowledgeable in her areas of expertise and always has a kind and caring manner. I would, without reservation, recommend Andrea to anyone, secure in the knowledge that they would receive compassionate knowledgeable care."

  • "Ten years ago, at the age of 78, I began suffering increasingly the from the aches, pains and stiffness associated with ageing. I tried a few sessions of general massage from Andrea; these proved so effective that I continued with fortnightly treatments and I am still active and agile at the age of 88. I warmly recommend her professional skills and urge anyone with similar symptoms to give massage a trial."

  • "I have been seeing Andrea for about 12 years now to help me with chronic pain from a number of medical conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis. She is my lifeline. I have been able to rely on her to either cure the pain in some cases, or to reduce it greatly in others. Andrea's gentle methods bring almost immediate relief, while other methods I have tried, such as chiropractic, and the Bowen technique (while excellent for some conditions) made my symptoms worse. Andrea is the last person I see before I travel and the first person I see on my return. I trust her and her abilities implicitly."

  • "I went to Andrea to stop smoking. As someone who hates needles I was a little apprehensive, however it really does work and it didnt hurt. I had three treatments over 6 days with a follow up treatment about a month later and I stopped smoking. Fantastic.
    I would highly recommend Andrea. Just give it a try."

  • "I decided to try Acupuncture after years of struggleing with shaking and severe weakness in my limbs which was effecting me in my everyday life. I had undergone a series of medical tests all of which had been inconclusive and in the end I was told that nothing could be done to help me. I had become very fearful about my deteriorating condition and had started experiencing regular panic attacks.
    I will be the first one to admit that I was desperate, then a friend suggested that I try Acupuncture and I decided to give it a go.I have had regular treatment with Andrea and I no longer have panic attacks, the shaking has improved by about 95% and the weakness in my limbs is gradually getting better almost week by week. I feel so much better in myself as well.
    I have been recommending Andrea to all of my Friends."

  • "I feel like myself again!"
