What it is
Although often described as a means of pain relief, acupuncture is used to treat people with a wide range of illnesses including gynaecological problems, headaches/migraines, and allergies such as hay fever, with a focus on improving the overall wellbeing of the patient. Chinese Medicine can also support people experiencing emotional and/or life-changing situations.
What to expect
You will receive an in depth assessment aimed at establishing both your physical and emotional wellbeing. A treatment programme is then devised to address these issues holistically and will usually involve a combination of acupuncture (use of fine needles) and acupressure (applied with the fingers and thumbs). If you have not experienced acupuncture before and are anxious about the use of needles, Sally will guide you gently through the process, applying the technique in areas where you won’t feel discomfort so that you become comfortable with the process. Your first visit will take 2 hours with subsequent visits lasting 1 ¼ hours.
Other services that can support your treatment
Sally will often work alongside our Physiotherapists and Chiropractors to help in the management of physical injury. Acupuncture may also be useful in combination with Holistic Massage, Hypnotherapy and Mindfulness to help reduce anxiety and aid relaxation.

Here’s What Our Clients Think of Us
For Karla (Hypnotherapist)
“I was here on 3-day work experience. The first day I was nervous but there was a ‘family atmosphere’ where everyone was really welcoming and made me feel comfortable. I enjoyed every minute and would love to come again.”
For Vicky (Vim and Vigour)
“I am now nearing the end of my second course of Vim and Vigour sessions. I must say, along with thoroughly enjoying myself I have noticed an improvement in my balance, core strength and flexibility over this period. My thanks go to Vicky who has focused the activities towards my particular needs and has also raised my awareness of how to combat the ageing issues my body is facing. Thank you.”
For Jo (Physiotherapy)
“I have to say that in all my years, working and coaching, and being treated myself, that was one of the finest pieces of work I’ve ever witnessed. My daughter is a very complex, head strong young lady. I am truly in awe of the way Jo took on the mental and physical challenges in a way she could accept. Very grateful for all you’ve done”
“Over the last 2 years of rehab, I’ve done lots of different exercises, some extreme that have worked me hard. This is the only one that I’ve had to ask to stop mid-session to get a drink of water, that’s how hard it pushes you, do not underestimate this fantastic form of exercise.”
