Background to Acupuncture

Acupuncture is widely recognized for its effectiveness in pain relief including neck and backache. It is however becoming more recognized to benefit a range of illnesses and symptoms, from migraines, sinus congestion, arthritis and digestive disorders, through to more general feelings of ill health such as nausea, lethargy or low energy. Due to it’s relaxing effect on the nervous system it is considered very beneficial for stress related conditions such as I.B.S, anxiety or depression. Some people without disease or symptoms choose acupuncture to enhance their feeling of well-being and maintain a balanced state of health.

Acupuncture is often used in the treatment of a variety of conditions and in conjunction with western medicine. Increasingly women are choosing to have acupuncture for fertility, in conjunction with IVF treatment, and to support them throughout pregnancy, for pre-birth treatment, labour and after giving birth. Nicola has been working for the last ten years primarily specialising in fertility, pregnancy and pre-birth acupuncture.
