Fine acupuncture needles are first-class tools for delivering physical medicine. Their successful use hinges on refined palpation skill and the ability to adapt to the unique circumstances of each patient.

Acupuncture is NOT merely the insertion of needles into defined acupoints but rather the treatment of tissues where the shape, feel and movement of the body has been distorted by pain or disease.

Patients should expect thorough examination of the problem area, but also where appropriate, broader investigation into the context underpinning their symptoms.
