Acupuncture treatments available at East Finchley Clinic
Acupuncture is a gentle form of treatment that works with your body to aid healing. Acupuncture uses fine, sterile, single use needles, to help relieve pain, stiffness, weakness, and restore function. The aim of treatment is to help speed your recovery. Evidence shows that acupuncture can help pain, inflammation, spasm, and can aid healing.
Acupuncture may be used on its own, or as part of an integrated physiotherapy approach. Depending on the condition being treated, sessions may also include some form of manual therapy, exercise and lifestyle advice.
Wendy Longworth has extensive acupuncture experience. She studied for a 2 year Licentiate in Acupuncture at the British College of Acupuncture, and since obtaining that qualification, has undertaken a considerable amount of annual post-graduate study, in many aspects of acupuncture.
