What is Acupunture?

Acupuncture originates from ancient Chinese traditional medicine and has been proven to be effective in managing a range of different issues when used alongside conventional treatments. It involves the insertion of several fine sterile needles at specific points around the body to stimulate the nervous system. Acupuncture can be used for a variety of different reasons including acupuncture for back pain, acupuncture for weight loss, or acupuncture for anxiety or depression. It is another option to consider when conventional treatments have not been effective. Doctify provides access to the best acupuncture in London and so you can be sure to find an acupuncturist near to you at a surgery or top rated hospital to suit your individual needs.

How is Acupunture performed?

How to prepare for Acupunture?

There is no preparation required for the procedure, though some acupuncturists may request that you shower or bathe at home prior to the procedure.

What happens after Acupunture?

After an amount of time depending on the practitioner the needles will be removed and you are able to continue with your day. You may experience slight dizziness upon standing up though that should subside.
