Acupuncture is a gentle therapy which works by regulating the nervous, circulatory and immune systems of the body to promote the body’s healing response.

Chinese medicine views pain, illness and emotional upset as a disruption of the body’s vital energy, or qi. Acupuncturists help to regulate the qi flow using needles and massage. By restoring the qi flow acupuncture has an effect on the entire body, so in addition to treating a specific condition, patients also notice improvements in their physical and emotional wellbeing.

Acupuncture is often used by couples who are trying to conceive either naturally or with medical assistance such as IVF. It is also a very safe and effective method of treatment at any stage of pregnancy.

We currently don’t offer Acupuncture at Leyton Holistic. We’re looking for a new acupuncturist so if you are a practitioner (or know of one) who might be interested then please get in touch with Quentin or Leti on 07468 331 450.
