Acupuncture in Harrogate.
Welcome to Acupuncture in Harrogate with Patti Hemmings
Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture has been used as a medicinal system for over 3500 years.
Over the last twenty-five years Acupuncture has grown substantially throughout the western world as a form of complementary medicine.
In Britain, Acupuncture is gradually being introduced into the NHS to treat pain. In 2009, The National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) concluded that patients with non specific lower back pain (that the cause of the pain is unknown) & osteoarthritis of the knees, recommended the use of Acupuncture to help relieve both conditions.
Traditional Acupuncture is a non-Pharmacological based treatment that offers relieve from many modern day conditions such as:
- Pain, Musculoskeletal (both acute & chronic), muscular & tendon injuries or inflammation, repetitive strain, frozen shoulder, Neck, Knee & back pain, arthritis, whiplash & sciatica
- Headaches & Migraines
- Stress, Depression, Anxiety, Low Mood, Insomnia & Eating Disorders
- Women’s health – menopausal, menstrual problems, infertility, pregnancy support
- Digestion & Bowel problems – I.B.S., Constipation, Nausea, Heartburn
- Allergies such as Hayfever
- Strengthening the immune system
- Chronic conditions such as ME, Chronic Tiredness, Parkinson’s & MS - acupuncture can help reduce the severity of the symptoms
- Complementary treatment alongside western medicine e.g. reducing the side-effects of radiotherapy & Chemotherapy
- Addictions – Support for withdrawal from Alcohol, Drugs, Smoking or Solvents
My goal is to work closely with you to find and treat the underlying cause of your condition. I use acupuncture as a tool to rebalance your body’s internal mechanism and restart the body’s natural healing process.
I offer a confidential and non-judgemental service. I work with individuals of all ages, from babies to those in their nineties & from a wide section of the community. I use a variety of treatments dependent upon your needs, including acupuncture, acupressure (often used for children & teenagers), cupping, moxibustion, ear acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, aromatherapy massage, hot stone massage, hopi ear candles and gua sha. I aim to work with you by looking at your lifestyle, which includes diet, and other factors that could be affecting your condition!
I have treated patients with a great variety of conditions, including many chronic health problems that have not responded well to conventional medical treatment.
Whether you are recovering from injury, managing a longstanding emotional, mental or physical health problem, I will give you individual care to regain your sense of wellbeing & health.
One of the benefits of Traditional Acupuncture is that it really helps to relieve stress, boost your immune system, improve your overall energy and enhance your motivation for life.
Often I am asked “How many treatments will I need?”
The number of treatments you will need depends on your overall health, the severity of your symptoms and how you respond to Acupuncture. Generally, acute conditions respond within a few treatments sometimes just one treatment is enough.
For chronic conditions, weekly treatments are often necessary for around four to six weeks (occasionally twice weekly appointments are necessary at the beginning, if this is the case then a reduced charge is made for the second appointment). After four to six weeks, the frequency of any required future treatments usually drops down to fortnightly but this will be discussed with you. As a general rule, the number of treatments will depend on your response to treatment and your lifestyle.
I am very happy to offer a 20 minute free consultation (by telephone or in person) which allows you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have!
If you would like to discuss your needs then please do not hesitate to telephone me on my mobile: 07787 831 275 or send me an email at [email protected]
