Medical acupuncture is a form of acupuncture that is solely based upon scientifically proven methods and results. It is a system of acupuncture devised by medical doctors in the West.
How does Medical Acupuncture work?
In very simple terms, it works on the nervous system by distracting the brain. For example, have you ever hurt yourself but didn’t notice because you were engrossed in something else, such as playing sport? Well, acupuncture works in the same way – it confuses the signals sent to the brain so that it no longer feels, or is less bothered by pain. Incidentally, this is exactly the same process that drugs such as ibuprofen and paracetamol work on, but without the side effects of drugs.
How safe is acupuncture?
Very safe in skilled hands and with safe practice. At The Fit Guru Clinic we have a stringent clinical waste policy, and only use single use sterile high quality needles. We always stay with you throughout your treatment.
What conditions can it treat?
It can be helpful in many conditions but the best known are:
- neck and back pain
- Muscular aches, pain and tension
- headaches and migraines
What happens in a session?
A small amount of very fine needles will be inserted into the skin and left for a short period of time. As the practitioner assesses your response, in future sessions the needles may be moved around.

I suffer with Arthritic joints especially in both my knees, a friend recommended Laura to me when I was at a particularly low point, suffering with daily aches and pains, which at the time seemed to be worsening. I was reluctant to up my anti-inflammatory medication, and that’s when my friend suggested having some Acupuncture treatment with Laura, I’am so glad I came.. at first I was sceptical regarding the benefits of Acupuncture but combined with massage and prescribed exercises it works a dream! It’s so lovely to no longer be in constant pain…Thank you Laura!
