Frequently Asked Questions:
What is acupuncture and does it hurt?
Acupuncture uses very fine needles which are inserted into specific points on the body to promote healing. It is generally a low pain procedure, most people describe it as mild or temporary.
What is a group pain clinic?
A group pain clinic is a setting where multiple individuals receive acupuncture in a shared space. An acupuncturist will visit each patient to discuss, insert and adjust the needles as needed.
What kind of pain can you treat?
Acupuncture is well known for pain relief effectiveness and is recommended in NICE (The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) as a treatment option. It can treat both acute and chronic pain. Although we recommended that pains that are presented with a complex health picture would be more suited to a one to one setting. If in doubt please give
us a call to discuss.
How long does a session last?
Approximately 30 minutes.
How many sessions do I need?
This varies from person to person, generally chronic pains require more treatment sessions than acute pains. Acupuncture can make a difference after one session but if it doesn’t seem to work straight away, give it 2-3 sessions and reassess.
What should I wear?
Please wear loose fitting clothes so your forearms, lower legs and shoulders are easily accessible.
Is it safe to receive acupuncture in a group setting?
Yes, it is. Acupuncturists follow strict hygiene and safety protocols. Each patient’s privacy and comfort is respected through positioning and single use, sanitised needles.
