WELCOME, BARBARA BISHOP ACUPUNCTURE
Acupuncture is a system of medicine that has been used to restore, promote and maintain good health for thousands of years by Chinese and other Eastern cultures. It is considered beneficial to treat a wide range of illnesses or symptoms, and also be used as a preventative measure to strengthen the body's constitution.
Treatments assess the individual and stimulate points on the body which activate the body's own healing mechanisms, by addressing any energy (Qi) imbalances.
I believe that health is not just about the absence of pain or disease, but about striving to achieve the best possible wellbeing state for you as a person by focussing on all health factors: physical, mental and emotional.
Along with needling I use: cupping; moxibustion (moxa); tu nia (Chinese massage); acupressure; myofascial taping; gua sha; electro; as well as giving lifestyle and dietary advice.
For needling: sterile, fine, single use, needles are inserted and left in place for an average of 20 minutes while you relax.

Acupuncture can be used safely alongside other therapies or treatments, and is suitable for all ages.
