Surgery

Acupuncture can play an important role in post-surgery care and healing, boosting the immune system and so encouraging the body’s own healing processes.  Most people are aware of the success of acupuncture in relieving pain but it can also help to reduce inflammation and swelling as well as improving mobility.

Before undergoing surgery can be a worrying time for patients and acupuncture can be helpful in relieving stress prior to surgery, calming the nervous patient and aiding sleep.

Gemma currently works with cosmetic surgeons on Harley Street to offer both pre and post-operative acupuncture.
