Acupuncture is one of the safest and longest established forms of health care. It is based on Chinese medicine principles that have been researched and refined over 2,000 years. Acupuncture is suitable for all ages and can be used effectively alongside most conventional medicine. I use a particularly gentle approach to acupuncture called Toyohari. I am a full member of the UK branch of the Toyohari Association. Find out more about this special therapy on this website.
Acupuncture is used to diagnose and treat the whole person rather than focusing on isolated symptoms. As a result it is not just initial conditions or illness that improve but other problems also resolve. Energy levels may be restored, and increased, and many people using acupuncture report an enhanced sense of well-being.
