Medical Acupuncture in Bath

Modern, research based treatment for pain relief

Western Medical Acupuncture is a modern, research-based approach developed from centuries old traditional methods used to provide pain relief.

Acupuncture may be successful by itself or when used alongside osteopathy to compliment osteopathic treatment, or in conjunction with deep tissue massage.

Some of the common conditions that medical acupuncture can be used to treat include:

  • Back pain
  • Neck and shoulder pain
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Arthritis
  • Knee Pain

It can also work for a small number of other conditions including headaches and migraines and post-operative nausea.

To understand whether medical acupuncture could help to provide pain relief or prevent your symptoms from recurring, contact us to arrange an initial assessment with our qualified practitioner of western medical acupuncture Sheena Harper. 


During an acupuncture treatment single use, sterile, disposable acupuncture needles are inserted into the patients skin, either locally at the site of pain or elsewhere, such as in the hands or feet. The needles rest in the skin and are left for up to twenty minutes or stimulated by the practitioner before simply being taken out.

Feedback from our Patients

“Sheena made a huge difference to my pain after just one visit. She also used acupuncture at the same visit at no extra cost which was helpful for my symptoms.”

Lisa Slater from Bath

“Sheena has been paramount in fixing all manner of ailments. Having regular maintenance treatments instead of waiting for a problem to arise, has kept me in tip-top condition and generally feeling in great health, physically and mentally. I would highly recommend Sheena and have even travelled 200 miles on occasions specifically for a treatment!”

M M from Bath

“Sheena has been treating my chronic lower back, after every session my pain is reduced, my stiffness is decreased, and as a result, my overall mood and happiness is significantly improved. I would highly recommend her to anyone requiring treatment”

E S from Bath

“Sheena has made such a difference to my long term aches and pains, and also shorter terms issues from too much DIY! She always takes the time to listen and try and pinpoint the reason or cause, and treat accordingly. I’ve also had acupuncture, which I was sceptical about, but it really worked and had great results. I am very pleased with the professional and caring approach and would not hesitate to recommend Sheena to others.”

Amanda Watts from Bath

“I wish I’d found Sheena years ago! Despite a long history of back problems, I’m feeling so much better after just one session. Friendly and professional, she put me instantly at ease, and took the time to understand my history and explain each step of the treatment. Would definitely recommend!”

Vicky Lee from Bath

“I saw Sheena today for pregnancy related SPD, she has helped so much after just one session, I would highly recommend her to everyone!”

Renee Clinch from Keynsham

“Sheena has been working on my aches and pains for 3 years now. I have Parkinson’s disease and her work enables me to move more freely, improves my mobility and in turn, helps me to cope with living with Parkinson’s. She is always friendly and dedicated to helping me. I can thoroughly recommend her”
