A warm welcome to all visiting Clare Ward Acupuncture Clinic
Suffering from pain or anxiety can be really disabling. First, we spend time talking and understanding the cause of your discomfort. Using my 15 years’ knowledge, qualifications, and experience as a practising acupuncturist, we create a treatment plan to suit you, as every patient is different.
Headaches/Back Pain/General Pain Treatment
Usher’s Syndrome Treatment and other Degenerative Eye Conditions
Anxiety, Tension and Excessive Worries Treatment
Acupuncture has been proven to be effective in managing a range of different issues when used alongside conventional treatments. It involves the insertion of several fine sterile needles at specific points around the body to stimulate the nervous system.
For those patients with needle phobias, she offers a range of no-invasive techniques that can be as equally effective.
Acupuncture can be used for a variety of different reasons including acupuncture for back pain, acupuncture for weight loss, or acupuncture for anxiety or depression.
Training with Andy Rosenfarb, Clare has started treating patients with degenerative eye conditions, although there is no cure, Acupuncture may prevent or slow the progression of the disease.
Please contact Clare by phone or email to discuss your needs.
Acupuncture Treatments in Milcombe near Banbury
It is advisable to plan for 6-8 sessions although everyone is different. To get the best out of treatment, it is best to book weekly and as we review progress at each session, we space out the treatments as your symptoms improve.
The first session is a consultation with medical history that is currently being conducted over the phone so as to reduce clinic time followed by a treatment in clinic soon afterwards.
Please wear clothing that is loose and comfortable. Ideally trousers should be able to roll up to the knees and in order to examine your abdomen and back, please wear trousers/skirt and a top in preference to a dress.
I have been trained in a gentle Japanese style of working which means that needles do not need to be inserted so it can be completely painless. Alternatively, needles that are inserted are, at the most approximately .20mm in diameter and are shallow inserted to a depth of 2mm or so.
A Japanese style of treatment called Shonishin involving no insertion of needles is used with children. They often enjoy the treatment and great effort is used to put them at ease at all times.
