About me

Claire Arthur acupuncture offers natural healthcare therapy for vitality and well-being.  Would you like to improve your quality of life, have a more balanced body and mind?  Have you thought about acupuncture for your health now and in the future?  Call Claire to find out how acupuncture can help you: 079 6977 0356 or 01483 414939.

Many people turn to acupuncture for help with a specific symptom or condition, for example: headaches, anxiety, arthritis, sports injury, backache, circulatory problems, facial paralysis, fibrosis, high blood pressure, menstrual problems, chronic fatigue or infertility.  Others choose to have treatment to help maintain good health, as a preventive measure, or to improve their general sense of wellbeing.

Because traditional acupuncture aims to treat the whole person rather than specific symptoms in isolation, it can be effective for a range of conditions. Acupuncture is holistic in its treatment, treating the mind, spirit and body by balancing and harmonising the body’s energy.

Therapies offered

Other available therapies

Moxa is a herb that is burnt close to the skin to stimulate the body’s energy.  It will not burn the skin but will feel deeply warming.

This is a gentle scrap of the skin to invigorate the body’s energy.  It can give a sense of release as well as relaxation.

This is the placing of vacuum cups on the body, commonly on the back.  This varies from a very gentle suction to a slightly stronger suction. This can draw out tension from the body leaving you relaxed and comfortable.

Based on the healing therapy of Tui na.  This is a very pleasant type of healing massage.

A finger or device can be used to stimulate an acupuncture point without the use of needles.
