Traditional Acupuncture recognises that illness and pain are signs that the body is out of balance a principle which is common to Osteopathy.

Both Andrew and Darren are graduates of the Northern College of Acupuncture.

Acupuncture compliments Osteopathy very well for this reason and combined treatments are often used to maximise the therapeutic effect.

Acupuncture is very effective at reducing muscle tightness when treating spinal and other joint pains.

What to wear at your consultation.

Vanity gowns are offered to all patients but we recommend that loose fitting clothing is worn.

Shorts or leggings for females is ideal and shorts for men.

If you are attending for a knee problem then shorts or loose trousers that roll up above the knee is best.

A conventional bra is better than a sports bra, especially if you are experiencing Thoracic (upper back) pain.
