from our therapist Helen
Helen joined Mayfield Osteopath's in 2010 and is able to provide relief from a wide variety of symptoms. Acupuncture is a treatment derived from ancient Chinese medicine. Fine needles are inserted at certain sites in the body for therapeutic or preventative purposes. Western medical acupuncture is the use of acupuncture following a medical diagnosis. It involves stimulating sensory nerves under the skin and in the muscles of the body.
A course of acupuncture usually creates longer lasting pain relief than when a single treatment is used.
Acupunture treatment can provide relief from a range of symptoms, including but not limited to chronic tension-type headaches, migraines and other musculoskeletal conditions.
What to expect from your appointment
We understand that sometimes coming to see a practitioner can be a daunting process, and we do our best to make our patients feel completely relaxed and at ease from the moment they walk into the practice.
If you haven't been to us before Helen will begin by taking a full medical case history from you, as well as asking you to complete a short medical information form. Helen will talk you through the best course of action and the likely duration of the recommended treatment plan.
