Right on your doorstep here in the heart of Fife we offer an acupuncture service. Patients from all over the county come for treatment. But if you have never experienced acupuncture whats it like and what conditions does it treat.
Acupuncture has been practiced for over 5000 years. Fine sterile needles are inserted in to specific sites on the body. These needles are then rotated or stimulated as the treatment progresses. There is virtually no pain involved and patients are often surprised that inserting the needles is virtually pain free. This is due to two factors. Firstly the needles are so fine and secondly the skill of the practitioner.
The world health organisation lists the number of conditions it says are helped by acupuncture. The list is too exhaustive to go in to here but suffice to say it covers a wide range of everyday conditions where pain or dysfunction occur. Here at wholehealth we treat all sorts of patients over a wide range of conditions including but not exhaustively ; aches and pains, sports injuries and arthritis, headaches, shoulder and neck problems and conditions relating to menstruation or pregnancy or skin conditions.
But don’t worry if your condition isn’t listed here. We are always available to talk so just lift the phone to learn how we may be able to help.
Acupuncture is often used as a treatment of last resort. Given that we tend to get the hardest of all cases, its amazing the results we achieve.
Treatment begins in the same way as when you attend the Doctor. We will discuss your history and if necessary make an examination,. We will discuss your treatment and then if appropriate begin treatment on that first session. Initial sessions are for 45 mins and subsequent session for half an hour. There’s always time to discuss matters with our patients.
So, to make an enquiry an appointment or to have an initial chat call wholehealth on 01383 622583. We will always be happy to chat and see how our range of treatment options can help you.
