I came away feeling that Jonathan was treating me with a solution relating specifically to me and my general health. After five treatments over nearly three months my hands and hips are rarely painful and I have not needed to take painkillers for the last two months.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does acupuncture hurt?

Acupuncture needles are nothing like needles used for injections. They are much thinner and usually cause no pain. More likely, you will feel the needle working once it reaches the acupuncture point. This sensation is often described as a 'tingling', 'dull ache' or a 'warm' feeling.

Is acupuncture safe?

Only single-use, pre-sterilised, disposable needles are used. The British Acupuncture Council, the regulatory body, demands high standards of hygiene.

How many Acupuncture treatments will I need?

It is difficult to say. Everyone is different and each treatment is specific to that individual, so the time it takes for recovery varies from person to person. As a rule, the longer you have had the complaint, the longer it will probably take to put right. It is hoped you would feel the benefit within six treatments. Please be assured that you will not receive more treatments than you need.
