Acupuncture for pain relief

Foot consultation using digital camera


Acupuncture has been used for the relief of pain for many centuries. In our clinic, we draw on traditional knowledge from the far east and we practice acupuncture in a way that is supported by modern medical research. 

Acupuncture has been shown to be effective for the relief of pain, through the stimulation of nerves and release of pain-relieving chemicals by the brain. It can be combined with other approaches to achieve maximum benefit. 


We practice acupuncture in a safe and effective way, using pre-sterilized needles and hygienic techniques.
