What's on offer
At Healing Point Acupuncture, the focus is on women’s health and what is needed to attain and maintain health at the different stages of our life. Our bodies have complicated and changing needs and the aim is to help women adjust to these needs in order to feel healthy, fulfilled and themselves.
Acupuncture is the use of sterile fine needles at specific sites on the body. This treatment not only alleviates symptoms, but can also treat the root cause of many health problems.
NICE guidelines and the NHS recommend the use of acupuncture for:
- migraines and headaches
- pain relief, i.e. neck, back and osteoarthritis of the knee and hips
- chronic pelvic pain
- palliative care
TDP lamp therapy
Also known as ‘far spectrum infrared’ lamps work in conjunction with acupuncture to encourage circulation through deep tissue relaxation for joint or muscular problems. The warmth and special infrared spectrum of these lamps enhances acupuncture treatment for certain conditions and are often used to treat menstrual cycle imbalances.
Chinese Herbal Medicine
This is a complete medical system, that can successfully treat varied and sometimes difficult to resolve conditions, such as:

- Rheumatological problems, i.e. arthritis
- Respiratory problems

Separate consultations can be given for Chinese Herbal prescriptions, but these are often integrated with acupuncture treatment as these treatments compliment each other.
