My name is Jenny Craig and I am a fully registered member of the British Acupuncture Council. I have been practising since 2000, and since 2010 I have been based in Wigtown, Dumfries & Galloway.
I am also funded by the NHS to provide supportive treatments for cancer patients at the Cancer drop-in Centre, Stranraer.
I practise mainly a Japanese style of acupuncture called Toyohari. This is a wonderfully gentle treatment, which most patients find a surprisingly painless and relaxing form of health care.
TRADITIONAL ACUPUNCTURE is a richly diverse therapy that originated in ancient China and has been developed and perfected over many centuries. It is based on the use of fine metal needles to regulate the flow of “life force” energy (Qi) throughout the body, helping to re-balance the whole system.
Acupuncture is becoming increasingly popular in the West and is accepted by many doctors as a safe and effective alternative, or as a complement to conventional medicine.
As a holistic therapy acupuncture can be useful in helping people with all sorts of health problems. Visit FAQs for more information about how it might help you.
