What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a form of therapy in which fine needles are inserted into specific parts of the body. It works by stimulating the nerves and releasing tension from the muscles.
Is Acupuncture safe?
Acupuncture is generally very safe. Any makeup will be removed whilst cleaning and preparing the acupuncture site. Single use, sterile needles are used in the clinic. Serious side effects are very rare – less than one in 10,000 treatments. Acupuncture can be carried out in conjunction with other medicines, as with all our services, we will review your medical history before starting any treatment.
Does Acupuncture hurt?
Most people think of needles and automatically think pain. Acupuncture offers minimal discomfort.
Why do we offer Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is great for patients that find themselves gagging during treatment.
Acupuncture is used as an alternative treatment option for facial and jaw pain problems.
Acupuncture helps nervous patients relax during treatment.
What about after the treatment?
Many patients feel a little tired after a treatment. Occasionally the acupuncture sites may feel slightly bruised for 24 hours or so, and occasionally an obvious bruise can appear – which will disappear over a few days. It is not uncommon for patients to notice other changes, for example their pain improves, or other aches change and become more obvious as the major problem is treated and improves. If you have any worries Dr Rothera will be able to answer your questions.
