Traditional acupuncture is a healthcare system based on ancient principles which go back nearly two thousand years. It looks at pain and illness as signs that the body is out of balance. There can be many reasons for this; emotional and physical stress, poor nutrition, infection or injury are among the most common.
By inserting ultra-fine sterile needles into specific acupuncture points, a traditional acupuncturist seeks to restore balance and trigger the body’s natural healing response.
The focus is on the individual, not their illness, and all the symptoms are seen in relation to each other. Each patient is unique; two people with the same western diagnosis may well receive different acupuncture treatments. What makes this system so uniquely suited to modern life is that the physical, emotional and mental are seen as interdependent.

She graduated from the Northern College of Acupuncture in 2007 becoming a member of The British Acupuncture Council. Jane went on to research the use of acupuncture during pregnancy to complete her MSc. and was more recently involved in a multi-centred research study looking at the use of acupuncture in the treatment of depression.
