Michelle believes that it is important to find a treatment that suits you and your needs.
Acupuncture today is considered part of conventional medicine rather than an alternative medical system.
Acupuncture and Pain Management:
Acupuncture can treat musculoskeletal pain, including myofascial trigger point pain. It is also effective for postoperative pain and nausea.
Recent research has shown that acupuncture treatment can be effective in treating back pain, shoulder pain, neck, knee pain & headache/migraine.
Auricular acupuncture can help stop addictions such as smoking and comfort eating, etc.
"Michelle is an absolute miracle worker and I cannot recommend her highly enough! I first saw Michelle when I was 13 weeks pregnant and had had a migraine for 5 days. I contacted her in desperation as I could not take my normal medication and alternative therapy was my only option. I have to admit that I wasn’t convinced of how effective acupuncture would be for my migraines. However Michelle worked her magic and immediately after the first session I felt a significant reduction in the level of pain. By the next day I had almost recovered and after a follow up session with Michelle I felt like a new person. I have suffered with migraine throughout my pregnancy and each time I have contacted Michelle immediately. She has cured all of them for me very quickly. I plan on seeing Michelle for treatment of any condition I face in the future. I feel very lucky to have found her and would not consider using anyone else!"

Acupuncture and Fertility & Women’s Health:
There has been significant research which has found that acupuncture treatment can have a positive affect on those trying for a baby and can actually aid the conception process.
Acupuncture can also be administered in conjunction with IVF which has been proven to increase its success rate.
"I had tried various self-help therapies to help alleviate my back problems and to increase my chance in getting pregnant but had no luck.
So when I saw Michelle’s leaflet at my GP Surgery, I thought I’d give it go.
Michelle was very reassuring and professional in her manner and set me on a course of weekly acupuncture and later prescribed herbs. She was always friendly and chatty towards me and I can now count her as a close ally. Her treatment did make me fall pregnant which I was ecstatic about.
Post-pregnancy I continued to seek further treatment and can say that acupuncture has really helped me and would definitely recommend it to others and with Michelle!"

Michelle also practices Chinese Cupping and Moxabustion.
Cupping, in traditional Chinese medicine, is a practice of placing glass cups on a patient’s back. The cups are heated over a flame to create vacuum and placed on patient’s skin creating suction.
For centuries, cupping has been used with great success for treating muscular tension and various respiratory diseases such as a cold virus, It can also be used as a valuable adjunct (in conjunction) in treating bronchitis and pneumonia.
Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves the burning of mugwort over the acupuncture points. The purpose is to stimulate the flow of Qi and blood, remove cold and damp from the body. It is particularly effective in treating arthritic pain.
