The Tower Clinic offers a wide range of acupuncture treatments in its fantastic clinic in Leeds.
What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a traditional medicine that embodies a holistic approach to health based on thousands of years of development in the Far East, particularly China. The tradition is as much about the maintenance of health as it is about the management of disease. Established as a safe and proven complementary therapy, Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles at specific points of the body.
Benefits of acupuncture
The Chinese concept is based on the belief that our bodies are regulated and motivated by an energetic force called Qi, which flows through the whole body but is particularly concentrated and accessible to acupuncture along paths, which are also known as channels or meridians. Symptoms associated with various illnesses can develop where Qi is weak, disturbed or out of balance. Acupuncture works to restore the balance of Qi, addressing the symptoms associated with such imbalances.
Common conditions treated with acupuncture at our clinic include:
- Back pain
- Sports injuries
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Skin disorders
- Gastro-intestinal conditions

“I booked my initial appointment with Teresa for Acupuncture treatment at The Tower Clinic and I must admit at first I was sceptical. After suffering for over 30 years with severe headaches following an accident, I can honestly say that the treatment I have received has been amazing and helped me enormously. My wife and myself found The Tower Clinic staff very welcoming and friendly and I found the surroundings to be relaxing, comfortable and of a very high standard. I would highly recommend Teresa to anyone considering acupuncture and have recommended her to my friends and colleagues.” – Alan Barugh – Holt Park
“I have been suffering with the symptoms of early menopause for a few months (hot sweats, paranoia, mood swings, tearfulness and to a certain extent-sadness). I approached Teresa at The Tower Clinic with a view to having acupuncture treatment to help. She was really helpful and sympathetic. At the initial assessment, she took a full history of the symptoms and explained how acupuncture works and agreed to treat me. I had a course of eight treatments over two months and I am happy to report that although I am still experiencing some hot sweats, the other symptoms have improved by 95%, for the first time in months I actually feel human again!! I am now having a monthly treatment to keep the demons at bay! Thanks Teresa, your treatment and support has been invaluable – I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who is sceptical or needs help.” – Dianne – Baildon
