What to Expect During Your Acupuncture Treatment

During your first consultation with an acupuncturist, they will take a detailed medical history and ask about your current symptoms and lifestyle habits. They may also use diagnostic methods, such as pulse and tongue diagnosis, to get a better understanding of your overall health condition.

Based on this information, the acupuncturist will create a personalized treatment plan that may include acupuncture and/or massage therapy. They may also recommend lifestyle changes, such as dietary modifications or stress-reduction techniques, to help support your overall health and well-being.

I first went to Tanya 7months ago feeling very unwell and very stressed and I am so pleased I made that initial appointment which was the start of my journey back to feeling well, calmer and stronger. I would have no hesitation in recommending Tanya’s accupuncture which has enabled my body to rebalance and heal.Furthermore Tanya has a very gentle and easy going manner which makes the whole session very relaxing and something to be looked forward to.

Tanya really helped me through an extremely debilitating condition when conventional medics were not interested. She listened carefully to my concerns and always followed up on the impact of her work, noting improvements and helping me to notice too. It was Tanya herself as well as the acupuncture that helped me recover. I would recommend to anyone.

Absolutely amazing acupuncture. Would highly recommend to all.
Sunny has been absolutely brilliant with my son who was struggling to manage a chronic health condition, as well as a significant amount of associated pain. She is very approachable and instantly built a professional but caring and trusting relationship with him (and indeed with us) which meant she was able to introduce needles into the treatment after only a very few sessions. Sunny adapted the treatment to his needs and priorities every session and not only did she get his pain under control but managed to improve his condition, where other healthcare professionals and treatments had been unsuccessful at that time. The results were so positive that he was able to return to school (he had been unable to attend for a number of weeks). Her ongoing 'maintenance' support of his condition since has also been outstanding. I would highly recommend her.

I went for a consultation with Sunny having suffered excruciating pain in my right knee for 6 months. I was unable to walk without limping all this time and was awakened every night with pain. I had some physiotherapy , which did not help at all. My GP offered me painkillers but nothing else. I thought I would try acupuncture. Sunny was very professional and knowledgeable and encouraged me by saying she had a penchant for treating knees. As I left the clinic I could walk with almost no pain. In the ensuing days I would say my condition had improved by 95%. I chose to have a further treatment and am delighted with the result. I heartily recommend Sunny without reserve and would definitely use her again without hesitation.

Very happy with the results of my treatment and with the way Tanya deals with my issues. She listens so much and acts on whatever the problem is. I feel so much better since I first started. In the past, I was a massive consumer of painkillers. Now I don’t even when’s the last time I had one.
I have started acupuncture just for my well being.I met Sunny and we started with a nice session where we talked about what my expectations are from this . Completed a form with my health background. Sunny is friendly and she is explaining how the procedure is going to be. It is my first time trying acupuncture.I have some exams and it does help me to relax and feel calm. She explains how the acupuncture works and she applies the suitable treatment in accordance to my needs.The needles don't hurt, you just feel like a small pinch.After my first session l felt like after a good nap or a good meditation session.Definitely recommend if you want to pamper yourself and give yourself a "me time"5 starsThank you Sunny for everything!!!

I met with Sunny when I had truly horrible back pain. I was barely able to walk and even the most subtle movement caused me great pain. Sunny explained what was involved with accupunture and took a lot of information on my health as well as the current issue at hand.After the first session I was able to walk with minimal pain and the results were quite extraordinary After the second session my problem cleared up completely. I can't recommend her enough. Thank you Sunny for your assistance.

I had an amazing treatment with Sunny last week. The unbearable shooting pain at the back of my head I suffered for nearly two weeks stopped the same day and never came back. A different acupuncturist (elsewhere) did not help at all. Thank you Sunny!
I have had three visits to the centre now. I like the peaceful setting and the rooms are big enough and the location is tranquil. I was treated by Sunny who seemed very knowledgeable and concerned to find the most appropriate treatment for my arthritic knees. I particularly found some relief from pain after having moxibution, as well as enjoying the intoxicating smell. I will continue with my treatment although realistically I am not expecting to suddenly have the knees of a 10 year old any time soon. But it was clear that some pain relief was felt after only a few sessions, so I will continue with it. Thank you.
