What is Acupuncture?

At our tranquil Acupuncture Clinic in East Grinstead, we treat a wide range of health conditions. These include pain associated with osteoarthritis of the knee or chronic pain conditions. We also treat more general symptoms, such as nausea or headaches. Recently we have been treating those suffering from Long Covid. You can have Acupuncture treatment as a measure to prevent illness, helping to maintain good health or to improve your mental health and  sense of well-being.

Acupuncture is one of the oldest and safest medical treatments in the world. You can come to us for a treatment to restore health or to promote and maintain health. It is used both as a stand-alone therapy or in combination with other forms of medicine to help treat a wide variety of acute and chronic health conditions.

Traditional Acupuncture works by helping to restore balance to the body’s vital energy or ‘Qi’. It involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body.

Acupuncture treatment is aimed at treating the root cause of a condition as well as the main symptoms. A holistic therapy, traditional Chinese Acupuncture treats the whole person – body and mind. It can be effective treatment for a range of conditions.

Since 2009, the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has recommended that Acupuncture should be made available on the NHS, as a cost-effective short-term treatment for the management of early, persistent non-specific lower back pain.  NICE now recommended Acupuncture as one of the alternatives to prescription drugs to treat chronic primary pain.

A full list of treatments available at our Acupuncture clinic in East Grinstead can be found here. If you are coming to us for the first time, you can take advantage of our free 15-minute initial consultation with no obligation (does not include treatment).
