You stay clothed and seated throughout and relax while the needles do their work.

Group sessions of six £15 per session
Scalp acupuncture is renowned for treating neurological and conditions including stroke, multiple sclerosis and spinal cord injury. However, this micro system can also be used for many other conditions including Depression, Parkinsons, Alzheimers, and diseases affecting speech and motor skills.
The unfortunate reality of acupuncture accessibility for stroke victims in the U.S. is movingly documented in the film 9000 Needles. Kevin Dearth received scalp acupuncture as part of his participation in an integrated stroke-rehabilitation program in China. He went there to receive treatment because a comparable level of care was unattainable in the U.S.
£50 for 1 hour
Fertility and Pregnancy acupuncture
Acupuncture has been found to aid fertility as a stand-alone or alongside IVF. A number of recent studies focus on how reproductive acupuncture helps fertility and improves IVF success rates. Acupuncture can also support women in pregnancy, particularly with symptoms such as morning sickness and heart burn. The use of Moxibustion to turn a breech baby is well documented.
TuiNa Therapeutic Massage
TuiNa is a dynamic form of massage based on the same principles as acupuncture and clients often feel energised and invigorated after a treatment.
TuiNa is a strong, therapeutic massage used to treat a variety of health issues as well as being very effective for musculo-skeletal conditions and injuries such as back pain and tension, whiplash, sciatica and frozen shoulder. It is delivered as a stand-alone treatment or to complement acupuncture.
