What can I expect?
How long does it take?
Is acupuncture safe?
Acupuncture is generally safe and has very few side effects, when conducted by a professional practitioner. The needles are single use, sterile and disposable, so won’t have been used before or again after your treatment.
All of our acupuncturists are qualified to degree level, are registered with the British Council of Acupuncture, and have completed training, provided by NHS staff, in the cancer patient pathway.
They are fully insured, and give their time for free. Donations are used to cover essential items such as continuing professional development of our volunteers, equipment and to pay our one essential part-time staff member.
*Please note, this is based on anecdotal feedback, and is not a promise that the therapy will give these benefits every time.
Two FREE Complementary Treatments, then a donation of your choice, for those with cancer or within 6 months of treatment, in Berkshire.
