Acupuncture

What can we help with?

Acupuncture is a medical treatment derived from ancient Chinese medicine in which fine single-use needles are inserted at certain points in the body for therapeutic or preventative purposes. Anna is a highly respected acupuncturist and one of the most researched in the country. She can work closely with you on a bespoke and realistic plan of action which may include addressing all aspects of life from stress management to postural advice and what you eat.

Acupuncture is perfect if you have ongoing conditions such as lower back pain, gynaecological issues, or short-term conditions such as sports injuries or tiredness. Its benefits also go beyond the physical realm, providing relief from stress, anxiety or depression.

Anna can use acupuncture when symptoms arise and as part of a supportive healthy lifestyle. She can help you maintain and promote good physical and mental health and overall wellbeing enabling you to live as full a life as possible and feel more in control.
