Traditionally, acupuncture has been used not only as a cure of many diseases, but of equal importance was the use of acupuncture as a preventative medicine, a maintenance practice to monitor and restore good circulation and wellbeing.
At its most fundamental level of practice, acupuncture is aimed at finding an individual treatment for each person. This approach is very much at the heart of my practice.
I usually use very few needles, normally 3 to 5 in one session. Sometimes I include massage as part of the treatment (usually back, feet or knees), depending on presenting symptoms.
