"HOT SWEATS !!!! Gone ! INSOMNIA! Gone! MOOD SWINGS!! Gone ! I didn't think it was possible as I had tried lots of other treatments that people suggested and no joy.
After just a few sessions I could feel the improvements and my energy levels rose and no more disturbed sleep. Feel like I want to tell every woman I meet !
Thanks for giving me my life back Michelle".
"I am not very good with needles and always been afraid of acupuncture as a result this but the back pain o was experiencing was just too much for me and a friend recommended Michelle and said it was not painful. She was right and after one session when I felt so relaxed I fell asleep, I can now have more movement in my back".

We’re Here for You
WHO HAS ACUPUNCTURE?
A lot of people have acupuncture to relieve specific aches and pains, such as osteoarthritis of the knee, TMJ, headaches and low back pain, or for common health problems like an overactive bladder. Some pregnant women have acupuncture throughout their pregnancy. Other people choose acupuncture when their bodily functions are out of balance, but they have no obvious diagnosis. And many have regular treatments because they find it so beneficial and relaxing.
WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?
Acupuncture needles are so fine that most people don’t feel them being inserted. It is normal to feel a mild tingle or dull ache as the acupuncturist adjusts the needle to direct qi. Many people feel deeply relaxed during the treatment.
HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?
Weekly treatments are normal to begin with, reducing in frequency as your body responds. The effect is usually felt within five or six treatments. Occasionally just one or two treatments are sufficient.
