What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a tried and tested system of Chinese medicine that helps to restore, promote and maintain good health and well-being. Fine needles are carefully placed to relax the muscles, relieve stress, helping to normalise the body function.
It is practised at the Waldegrave Clinic for its proven effectiveness in pain relief and as a stand alone natural treatment to improve your overall health and well being.
