What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture goes back centuries, and has been used as a treatment throughout the world.
Using tiny, specialised needles inserted into the skin, it aims to trigger a response in the body, which could help to promote an improvement in health and wellbeing.
At 1 Step Foot Health we offer a tailored service to help you get the most from your sessions. Based in Nottingham, we provide a service to clients from across the area, including nearby Derby and surrounding towns and villages.
How acupuncture can be used:
Living with chronic pain, or pain caused by a disability or injury can be challenging. Many clients have found that acupuncture helps them manage pain more effectively, whether that is headaches, joint issues or muscle pains.
Relaxation and mental wellbeing
Others find that acupuncture helps the mind as well as the body. At 1 Step Foot Health we also provide this service to people who are looking to relax after a hard day, manage their anxiety or worries, or otherwise feel more balanced and spiritually attuned.
Whilst many clients have reported benefits, this is intended as a complementary treatment. It should not be used as an alternative to medical advice or treatment, and we always recommend speaking to a GP first if you plan to use acupuncture for health reasons.
"First visit, phoned up for an appointment for my mum who is 87, found out she was fully booked and that she would get back to me if there was a cancellation. Later on called me back to say they had a cancellation. Took my mum down, mum's very happy with the treatment and would happily go back again."
