Can you imagine having a reliable and effective treatment for all your aches and pains?


Acupuncture is that treatment.


Acupuncture is a very effective medicine for the management of both acute and chronic (long-term) pain. It works

exceptionally well as a stand-alone treatment, and also as an adjunct to other manual, physical and pharmaceutical



Recent research papers such as The White Paper on Evidence-Based Non-Pharmacological Pain Care demonstrate

just how effective acupuncture is for both acute and chronic pain care. 


Examples of conditions successfully managed with acupuncture include, but is not limited to:


  • Acute ankle sprain

  • Acute muscle tears

  • Tendonitis – Tennis and Golfers elbow are the classic examples

  • Neck and shoulder tension and discomfort, acute and chronic

  • Lower back pain – acute and chronic recurring pain due to old injuries

  • Sciatica

  • Knee pain

  • Plantar fasciitis – sore feet when walking, especially when you first get out of bed in the morning

  • Post surgical recovery


…and the list goes on. Basically, if it hurts, acupuncture can help!

“An often under recognised feature of non-pharmacologic therapies is their ability to confer additional

benefits: a treatment to reduce pain can also reduce anxiety and depression, nausea and vomiting;

facilitate restful sleep; and increase a patient’s sense of well-being and desire to participate in their own



So, we are not just reducing your pain alone, we are also reducing the distress of pain, improving your general sense

of well-being and aiding your lasting long-term recovery.
