Hello and welcome. I hope the information given here is helpful to you as a general guide, but if you have any queries please get in touch.
Acupuncture is a system of healing developed through centuries of careful observation. It is one of a number of practices that keep the body in balance to promote healing, well-being and relaxation. This means that it works well with conventional medicine, and allows the individual to take control of their health on not only a physical level, but emotional and spiritual wellbeing.
My name is Jo and I had over thirty years nursing experience, before training in Chinese Medicine. I aim to provide a quiet, relaxed space in order to listen to symptoms, take a history, and make a diagnosis. Treatment is offered through a supportive, confidential approach to enable time for yourself, reflection, and to identify specific health goals in order to help you to take control of your health.
During appointments other techniques such as gua sha, tui na, moxa and cupping will be used alongside palpatory techniques in order to provide a full picture and feedback on symptoms, presentations and expectations for treatment.
