How do we provide such an affordable service?

Our clinic space is strictly no frills !
It was chosen for its easy access, parking facilities and low rent.
There are no fluffy towels or bath robes, but it is clean and licensed for acupuncture by Manchester City Council. We do have all the basics, including single use sterile needles, a sharps contract and all the right paperwork and insurance which shows we practise cleanly and safely.

The clinic is run as a not-for-profit Community Interest Company and all the overhead costs are kept to an absolute minimum. Our team does get paid for the treatments they do, but a proportion of our takings goes back into the clinic to buy equipment, pay the bills and any little emergency we might need to take care of.

The communal clinic space enables us to treat several clients at a time - everyone gets their individual 20 minutes and then plenty of time on the couch - but this is what keeps our costs down.

Acupuncture when used alongside IVF doubles the chances of pregnancy  - these results are from a study by Homerton University Hospital in London. 160 couples were divided into two groups. Pregnancy rates in the half receiving acupuncture were 46.2% against 21.7% in the half which did not. Stuart Lavery, consultant gynaecologist at Hammersmith Hospital said “There is a patient demand in the field of acupuncture  . . . and this study is interesting in that it shows a statistically significant difference."
