First there is a consultation..The practitioner takes a detailed medical history and looks at all aspects of the person presenting the problem. Detailed questions are asked in order to build a comprehensive picture of the person as a whole, not just the presenting complaint. The tongue will be looked at also and the pulse taken. Including the consultation, the first visit can take about 90 minutes. A Treatment Plan is drawn up, addressing also other aspects of a person’s life such as diet, exercise and lifestyle.


An acupuncture treatment is based on the practitioner’s findings. The patient lies on a treatment couch and the needles are carefully inserted with speed and efficiency. The atmosphere is calm, relaxed and private.The technology in manufacturing modern acupuncture needles is highly sophisticated. The needles are much finer than those used for hypodermic needles and therefore very little sensation is felt. The needles are disposable and safe.There are no harmful side effects.


It may take several visits to see a significant improvement. Each treatment usually lasts 45 minutes. After a treatment the patient is advised to be careful driving because a treatment usually leaves a patient extremely relaxed and sometimes a little disorientated.


“After losing our first baby, having difficulty conceiving afterwards and two miscarriages,  I attended Liz for fertility treatment. After the first session I immediately felt at ease and felt that she genuinely wanted to help. During my treatments I actually did relax and zone out. Liz is a true professional and my husband and I have no doubt she played a huge part in two successful pregnancies and healthy babies and healthy babies. We are eternally grateful to liz for her help and ‘magic needles’. Thank you so much. Caitroina.

I have been attending Liz for many years now and have always found her to be so professional and concerned about her client. I have always felt the benefit of her treatments and her kind ear. She has always given great advice and has such a lovely way about her. I am a much more balanced and healthy person because of the help of acupuncture.” Jackie
