Mapperley Alternative Health Centre and Acupuncture Clinic


This makes acupuncture effective for a wide range of different conditions including headaches, insomnia, asthma, eczema and other skin conditions, trapped nerve, sciatica, lower back pain, arthritis, infertility, IBS, heavy periods, depression etc.

Acupuncture treats the root cause of our condition. So for example, conventional medicine may treat a headache by numbing the pain. However we believe that headaches can be caused by a deficiency in the blood flowing into the brain. Treat this and the headache goes away – no pain killers needed! We treated the cause, not the symptom.

The benefits of traditional acupuncture have been widely researched. A World Health Organisation report found acupuncture effective for over 90 different symptoms.

It's quite often the case that our patients have already been receiving conventional treatments for their condition. In some cases the problems are deep rooted or even acute. We will provide you with advice on how to proceed, working in consultation with your current doctor where this is required.
