So I decided to consult Jonathan and started acupuncture treatment in September 2009. Since then I have not had any infections resulting in no antibiotics and no pain. I sleep really well, my energy levels are up and my whole body and mind feel great thanks to acupuncture.

Who has acupuncture?

Many people have acupuncture for help with specific symptoms or to relieve specific pains Some people come to acupuncture as their first choice, while others are drawn to it, sometimes in despair that their symptoms have not been helped with conventional medicine.

"My doctor could not find what was wrong, so I turned to acupuncture. It put all the pieces together and I now feel great".

Others come to acupuncture knowing that something is not right and will turn to acupuncture when either nothing can be found or no suitable treatment given.

People also come to acupuncture to improve their general sense of wellbeing, to help maintain good health, as a preventative measure. Because acupuncture aims to treat the whole person rather than specific symptoms in isolation, it can be very effective for a range of conditions.

Acupuncture is considered suitable for all ages including babies and children, elderly and the chronically ill.

Acupuncture can help with a range of conditions, if you would like to find out whether it can help you please telephone, text or email I am happy to answer any questions you may have.

What can acupuncture do for me?

Acupuncture works to maintain our body's equilibrium, which can become blocked for a number of reasons; e.g. our lifestyle, trauma, diet, emotional upset, injury etc. In certain instances, acupuncture can be an effective therapy to help restore balance and promote physical and emotional harmony.

For nearly every named "western" illness, there is a Chinese Medicine interpretation of that illness, specific to each individual. With acupuncture you are truly treated as a whole person, not as someone having a single illness. In the UK, more and more people are turning to acupuncture.

"I said what was wrong with me and Jonathan listened. All the details of my health had significance. I am treated as a person, not as an illness or a number".
