Frequently Asked Questions
If you’re nervous about needles, you might be relieved to know that acupuncture needles (about the same width as a human hair) are not inserted like an injection, so you won’t experience the same feeling. Most people feel little to no pain as the fine needles are placed. Post treatment, clients report that they feel deeply relaxed and super chill.
Many people use acupuncture for help with specific symptoms or conditions. Others choose acupuncture as a preventive measure to strengthen their constitution or because they just feel generally unwell. Acupuncture is considered suitable for all ages including babies, children and the elderly. It can be very effective when integrated with conventional medicine.
Acupuncture therapy is widely accepted because of the fact that it has no unpleasant side effects.
Some private health insurers also offer some form of insurance cover for acupuncture treatments with British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) registered acupuncturists like Malti. So check with your Insurance Company.
