Medical Acupuncture differs from Traditional Chinese Acupuncture in that it is based upon the lifetime recorded observations of Dr.Felix Mann, a London based physician who began his research and practice of acupuncture in 1958.
He was the first president of The British Medical Society of Acupuncture and provided extensive evidence based research on outcomes and thus effectiveness of acupuncture in varying illnesses.
The methods used in our clinical practice are based on his evidence based findings.
Acupuncture has proven medically effective in treating the following conditions:
- Back or joint pain
- Musculoskeletal (muscular) pain
- Headaches and migraine
- Vomiting in pregnancy (Hyperemesis Gravidarum)
- Ulcerative Colitis and Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Sinus Problems or Rhinitis
Medical Acupuncture is applied by Dr O’Beirn who has much experience in this field. It moreoften requires a 15-30 minute consultation.
The procedure is minimally invasive and pin prick sensations are minimally uncomfortable.
Appointments for Acupuncture are available on Monday, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9-5pm.
