Acupuncture

Acupuncture needle Acupuncture may successfully treat a wide variety of disorders, including gynaecological, menopausal and fertility problems; migraines; digestion imbalances; arthritic and general musculo-skeletal pain and inflammation, and disharmonies such as anxiety, depression and insomnia.

Traditional Chinese Acupuncture uses the needles to stimulate and guide the body's own healing process, and unlike hypodermic needles, Acupuncture needles do not put anything into the body and do not take anything out. This delicate procedure leads to a virtually pain free experience, and Lucy is renowned amongst her patients for her gentle needling technique, allowing even needle-phobic people to enjoy the many possible benefits of acupuncture treatment. A pleasant tingling sensation, a buzzing or an aching may be experienced during treatment, indicating the strength and movement of the patients' energy.

Lucy also uses, where appropriate, Chinese heat treatment in the form of a Moxa herb stick, which is lit and burnt well above the acupuncture needle to put a very soothing, nourishing warmth into the body to give an extremely relaxing experience. All aspects of a patients lifestyles is taken into consideration, including any dietary changes which may be appropriate under Traditional Chinese medicine theories in order to offer the most comprehensive health care for patients.
