Acupuncture is a very old therapy technique. Our acupuncture techniques are known as Western or Medical acupuncture and are used for pain relief only. Needles are inserted at individually determined points of the body. We use only high quality, disposable sterile needles.
A full assessment will be given and it is important that you give the Podiatrist a full medical history to ensure that acupuncture is a suitable treatment for you.
