Our clinic is a multibed clinic - we have six beds and two experienced practitioners.
Our approach to acupuncture means that we treat each person as an individual, assessing their needs on a physical, mental, and emotional level. You may choose acupuncture for a long term condition, a recent problem, or just because you want to take care of yourself. You may come for treatment for an existing condition or problem, or as a preventative health approach.
In the Far East and America, the practice of treating more than one person at the same time has become commonplace. This enables the practitioner to place needles in one patient, leave them to relax into their treatment, and then move on to another patient.
By treating more than one patient each hour, a practitioner can significantly reduce the price of each treatment and pass the savings on to the patient. This also means that there is the added bonus of no waiting lists.
The multibed setting is a great way to chat to your practitioner and meet other patients in a very relaxed atmosphere. This can promote a sense of humanity and togetherness that enhances the healing process.
