In an acupuncture treatment extremely fine, sterilised needles are inserted into specific points on the body.
There are around 500 acupuncture points and some of the points selected during a treatment may not be close to the part of the body where the problem is experienced. For example, although you may suffer from headaches, needles may be inserted in your foot or hand as the meridians that are located around the site of the headache flow from the head to other parts of the body.
I know that some people can be of nervous of needles, but you do not need to worry! I use a gentle needling technique and high quality needles to ensure your comfort during the treatment.
