The treatment will be tailored not just to treat your main symptoms, but also to understand & resolve the root cause of your condition by adopting a holistic approach to the consultation and diagnostic process. Some people will come for treatment following a conventional diagnosis from their GP whilst other people choose to have acupuncture simply because they don't feel right in themselves. By adopting a holistic approach, the aim of acupuncture is to activate your body's own healing response to recover a healthy and natural balance, whatever your reason for treatment.

For more information, a confidential chat or to book a course of treatments, please contact me for a free consultation at my Brighton clinic. You can also get further information on current research into the efficacy of acupuncture and conditions treated from The British Acupuncture Council Website.

Acupuncture has been practised in Eastern countries for over 2,000 years. Acupuncture works to help maintain your body's equilibrium and involves the insertion of very fine sterile needles into specific points on the body to regulate the flow of vital energy or qi (pronounced chee).

The underlying principle of acupuncture treatment is that illness and pain occur when qi becomes blocked or depleted or deficient. There can be many reasons for this in modern life: emotional and physical stress, poor nutrition, infection or injury are among the most common.

An acupuncturist will seek to promote the free flow of qi to restore balance and trigger the body's natural healing response.
