We are all born with some inherited weaknesses. For example some of us may have had digestive problems since birth or may always have a tendency to hay fever. Acupuncture can be used to strengthen these weaknesses and to protect against developing further problems in the future.


Traditionally the great sages of Chinese Medicine used acupuncture to prevent illness and maintain optimum health.

As the seasons change so does the body’s energetic system. Acupuncture is a great alternative and can be used to harmonise the energetic systems of the body with the changing environmental energies, assisting to strengthen the immune system and thus prevent illness. It is best to undertake treatment at the beginning of each new season.


Acupuncture can be successfully used to treat many longstanding chronic conditions. It targets the underlying cause of disease as well as helping with symptomatic relief so that the body can reach full recovery. For acute conditions and flare-ups, seek immediate acupuncture treatment to hasten recovery and nourish the body's underlying energy reserves.


Chinese medicine views the body and mind as a whole. Physical illness can often be inter-related with emotional imbalance. As well as treating physical manifestations of disease, acupuncture can be great to assist with healing on both a spiritual and emotional level.

These treatments can also be very beneficial for those that are experiencing extreme emotional trauma such as grief, shock, depression, anxiety or those living with an addiction.
