Acupuncture Treatments

Acupuncture is a form of ancient Chinese medicine which is where fine needles are inserted into the skin at certain pressure points. At the outset, we offer a thorough consultation to assess your individual needs, before acupuncture needles are inserted at chosen points to channel energy and stimulate the body's own natural ability to restore balance. This balance can be disrupted by a number of factors and the idea of acupuncture is to restore the body to a natural equilibrium without resorting using powerful inorganic drugs as the default method of treatment.

Many people are nervous about the idea of needles, but in fact we often find that the treatments can become so relaxing that people fall asleep. After the acupuncture I will work with you to put together a treatment plan uniquely tailored to your needs so that you can maintain your newly balanced state in the long term.

Covid 19 Update

We are following the guidelines from the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists which state that we should continue to offer an initial virtual assessment appointment via video or telephone call.  The Physiotherapist will then make a professional judgement if it is necessary for you to come into the clinic or remain with virtual appointments. If treatment in the clinic is advised, further details and instructions will be provided by email prior to your appointment.

To ensure the safety of our patients and our staff, we have provided the recommended Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).  Extra hygiene measures have been put in place, such as a handwashing area on arrival, antibacterial hand rub, antibacterial spray for all equipment and there is now a one- way system clearly signposted on the floor.  There will be limited patients allowed in the clinic at any one time. Please do not arrive too early for your appointment.

We are so looking forward to returning to some sort of normality and providing an excellent service once again, to all our patients.

With best wishes

The Team at The Wells Physiotherapy Clinic
