What is an acupuncturist?
Acupuncture originates from ancient Chinese traditional medicine and has been proven to be effective in managing a range of different issues when used alongside conventional treatments. It involves the insertion of several fine sterile needles at specific points around the body to stimulate the nervous system. Acupuncture can be used for a variety of different reasons including acupuncture for back pain, acupuncture for weight loss, or acupuncture for anxiety or depression. It is another option to consider when conventional treatments have not been effective. Doctify provides access to the best acupuncture in London and so you can be sure to find an acupuncturist near to you at a surgery or top rated hospital to suit your individual needs.
When to see an acupuncturist
Acupuncture is an alternative method of treatment and can work effectively to not only treat physical pain but also to treat psychological issues. If you find that other treatments for your issue have been unsuccessful then it would be worth trying acupuncture. Doctify has a team of experts who deliver acupuncture in London. We have an acupuncture specialist ready to assess your needs and deliver a course of treatment tailored to you. Acupuncture is a practice that is usually effective over several sessions and it is therefore important to find a leading acupuncturist, which will ensure that you experience positive results.
There is no preparation required for the procedure, though some acupuncturists may request that you shower or bathe at home prior to the procedure.
After an amount of time depending on the practitioner the needles will be removed and you are able to continue with your day. You may experience slight dizziness upon standing up though that should subside.
