Acupuncture in AylesburyHave you ever considered Acupuncture? Our fully qualified acupuncturist Penny Upchurch can treat a huge variety of conditions from Back Pain, headaches, hay fever and stress to Fertility and to promote Induction of labour. There truly are a huge range of conditions that can be treated without Pain.

How can acupuncture help me?

A growing body of evidence-based clinical research shows that traditional acupuncture, as practised by British Acupuncture Council members safely treats a wide range of common health problems including short-term relief of symptoms such as low back pain, tension-type headaches and migraine-type headaches. It can also be used to help temporarily relieve pain associated with osteoarthritis of the knee (along with exercise and conventional medicine). In fact the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines on best practice now recommend that GPs offer a course of 10 sessions of acupuncture as a first line treatment for persistent, non-specific low back pain. In September last year, NICE announced it also recognises acupuncture’s benefits for migraines and tension-type headaches too.

Some Conditions treated:

  • stress, anxiety, panic attacks
  • headaches, migraines, insomnia
  • gynaecological problems, infertility
  • pregnancy including the birthing process
  • musculo-skeletal problems, back pain
  • hayfever, asthma, digestive disorders
  • and a wide range of other health problems


Penny has experience treating women and couples at different stages of their journey towards pregnancy, including those who have been diagnosed with unexplained infertility.

Pregnancy acupuncture

Acupuncture can be safely used throughout pregnancy, during the birthing process and to assist induction once the due date is reached. Penny can show couples how to use acupressure points during labour to help relieve pain and assist with contractions.
