What we do
We offer discounted treatments to a very limited amount of patients who would struggle to pay full treatment prices.
If patients cannot afford treatments at the standard rate and would not be able to come for treatments because of this we can offer treatments with a sliding scale from £20 to the full price.
Note: The time spent with a patient getting to know how they are, often at quite a deep level, is a very important aspect of treatments. Discounted treatments are therefore not cut in length or quality .
This offer is available for those who could not otherwise come for treatment.
At City Spring we practice traditional acupuncture .
Acupuncture is one of the longest established forms of healthcare in the world. Acupuncturists are trained to use subtle diagnostic techniques that have been developed and refined for thousands of years. The focus is on you as an individual, not your illness, and all symptoms are seen in relation to each other.
Traditional acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body to affect the balance of your body’s Qi, or vital energy.
We may also use a technique called moxabustion which is applying a smouldering herb to the same points in order to warm deeper inside the body. (If you wonder why this is included, just think about aching muscles and how good a simple hot water bottle may feel when applied to those muscles).
Other techniques like cupping or Gua Sha may be used.
Additionally we may show you some simple Qigong exercises if they are appropriate for you and why you are seeking treatment.
Once you decide to have treatments you can book in for your first session.
The first session is both diagnosis and treatment so can be around 1.5 to 2 hours.
Session one costs £55
From session two onwards treatments should take just under an hour.
The cost of these treatments is £40
Clinic runs throughout the week with evening appointment and weekend slots available.
Private Health Insurance: Jon is a member of the British Acupuncture Council. This often means that patients are able to reclaim the costs of their treatment, where they have health insurance in place.
Cancellation policy: Broken appointments or cancellation may be charged for, at the full rate, unless 24 hours notice is given.
