Acupuncture at The Acupuncture Works in Lewes

Acupuncture is a complete system of medicine, which has successfully maintained the health of more than 1/4 the world’s population for the last 3,000 years.

Its effectiveness lies in its ability to address simultaneously the root cause of disease and treat its manifesting symptoms. Throughout history medical practitioners have understood this principle to be fundamental to the health of their patients.

Internal Energy

Acupuncture works by careful manipulation of the patient’s internal network of channels (meridians) by using tiny disposable, hair-like filaments and / or  massage, at prescribed meridian points, encouraging the acceleration of the body’s healing process and restoring the patient to a state of renewed health.

Qi Energy Flow

All the acupuncture filaments used in the practice are sterilised and disposable. Being ‘hair-like’ in thickness, most patients don’t even notice their insertion! A small electrical sensation or a dull ache may be felt upon activation of the acupuncture point but it certainly isn’t painful.
