The George Centre
18 High Street
My name is Stuart Eaton and I have been working as an Acupuncturist for 9 years. I use Acupuncture to treat a variety of different conditions from muscle problems such as back ache and neck pain to other conditions like migraines and vertigo.
Acupuncture works by inserting very fine needles into the body to help the body to heal itself. It works by trying to balance the energy of the body. In terms of its effect from a western medical angle, it is though to stimulate blood flow, relax muscles and turn off pain receptors in the brain.
Although the idea of having needles stuck in you isn't the most appealing, the thought is a lot worse that the actual therapy. All the needles are very fine and so are hardly felt at all. All the needles used are pre-sterilised so there is no risk of infection and they are disposed of after treatment.
Whatever condition you may have Acupuncture could help. So why not give it a go, you don't have to put up with pain.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a degree in complementary medicine which achieve from the University of Lancashire. I also have a diploma in Acupuncture which I earned following a 4 year course at the Northern College of Acupuncture in York.
I am also a member of the British Acupuncture council which is the main governing body for traditional Acupuncturists.
As well as my main qualifications in Acupuncture I also take part in regular courses to improve my practise and have attended courses on Acupuncture in Gynaecology, sports injuries and many others.
