The Acupuncture Works is a community acupuncture clinic, also known as a 'Multibed'.
What does this mean?
Clients are treated in one room
with screens separating the
treatment couches for privacy.
Treating in this setting reduces our overheads which means we can pass the savings onto you. Whilst you receive a relaxing treatment in a communal setting.
Respecting your privacy
Initial consultations are done in a private room. Anything you tell us confidential and we can make this room available should you wish to talk to us in confidence.
Most treatments don't require you to undress further than taking your shoes and socks off and rolling up your trousers and shirt sleeves. If we need access to other areas of the body such as the back, shoulders or tummy, towels are provided. Treatment only takes place when you are comfortable.
Why choose a community setting?
- it's cheaper !
- often, treatment is longer: giving you the most benefit
- acupuncture in a communal setting can be very therapeutic and relaxing
- challenging and complex issues can be considered by more than one acupuncturist, enhancing the best practice in your treatment
