Elma McElligott is an experienced Licensed acupuncturist offering acupuncture to a wide variety of people. Acupuncture is suitable for all ages including those who are pregnant. It can be used effectively alongside conventional medicine. Acupuncture has been acknowledged by the World Health Organisation (WHO) to benefit a variety of illnesses Including migraine, back pain, headache and a wide range of health conditions.
This latest recommendation (2012) from NICE that GP's should consider a course of up to 10 sessions of acupuncture for the preventative treatment of tension-type headaches and migraine is welcome news for those people suffering with these debilitating conditions.
Treatment is aimed at the root of your condition as well as your main symptoms. This approach helps with resolving your problem and enhancing your feeling of well-being. Many people come to Acupuncture for help with specific symptoms or to relieve specific pains like osteoarthritis of the knee. Some use Acupuncture because they feel generally unwell but have no obvious diagnosis. Others choose Acupuncture simply to enhance their feeling of well being.
