Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine stainless steel needles into the skin. It has been used in China for over 2000 years and increasingly in Western medicine, with a growing body of scientific evidence and clinical research supporting its effectiveness.

At Dorothy House, we can use acupuncture to assist with symptom management, for example, to reduce pain, alleviate muscle spasm, induce general relaxation, improve sleep pattern.

The resource below details general acupuncture information, what will happen at your acupuncture appointment, how many sessions you can have, and possible side effects.
