Bryony is a traditional and cosmetic acupuncturist in Harrogate working from 2 modern clinics in the town centre.
Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and to improve functioning. Acupuncture does this by the insertion of hair fine needles at very precise acupuncture points along channels in the body. This helps the body release endorphins and other chemicals to stimulate the bodies natural healing response and rebalance hormones. Acupuncture also relaxes the muscles and reduces inflammation in the body. It can be used as a stand alone treatment or can be used effectively alongside conventional medicine.
Acupuncture is a safe, gentle and relaxing form of treatment, which can benefit people of all ages, helping with specific conditions or symptoms and giving people the benefit of the feeling of relaxation and wellbeing.
Bryony will look at your condition and symptoms with a unique approach with a number of diagnostic methods. This along with a full history allows Bryony to get a complete picture to treat the root cause and deeper patterns of disharmony underlying the specific symptoms. She will put together a personal treatment plan and select the acupuncture points accordingly.
