Unsure about needles

If, like many people, you are wary of needles, I am able to offer effective treatments using massage, acupressure or cupping. This then allows a gradual introduction of needles at later stage of treatment if you start to feel more comfortable. However, please be assured that I will never impose needles on you and it is always a decision made between the two of us.

The needles I use are very very fine (usually between a fifth and a quarter of a mm), sterilised and individually packaged. When people think of needles, they often imagine the type of needle that might be used for an injection or to take blood. In fact, you can fit about 5 acupuncture needles into the shaft of a hypodermic needle!
