Norwich acupuncture room Norwich acupuncture - Nicola Rycroft

Nicola Rycroft at Rowan HouseNicola is now also working at the Rowan House Health and Wellbeing Centre at 28 Queens Road, Hethersett, Norfolk, NR9 3DB

Although Nicola would love everyone to benefit from acupuncture, the realities of life mean that she has to charge for her time. If you feel that you would benefit from acupuncture but are unable to afford her fees, please discuss this with Nicola.

"I can highly recommend Nicola, she has been wonderful and for this year has completely cured me of my Hayfever! I feel a million times better and I plan to visit again to keep the hay fever at bay. Nicola is kind, and incredibly knowledgeable and you are made to feel comfortable as soon as you arrive."
Mrs W. Norwich

"Having tried acupuncture before with mixed results, my osteopath suggested Nicola Rycroft from Rowan House Health & Wellbeing in Hethersett, just outside of Norwich (she also works at Cringleford). Our first appointment was quite long as I have a very complex medical history but nothing was too much trouble and she listened sympathetically and very professionally. After the first treatment I came home and slept so well and felt so calm but also energised over the following days. I went to her with pain which needed calming down and low energy. After three treatments I felt a huge improvement and I will be returning for further appointments. I can highly recommend Nicola and her treatment."
Mrs J, South Walsham

"I can highly recommend Nicola, an absolute professional with a passion for her work. I have now visited on two separate occasions to help with hormonal issues and monthly headaches, amazing how much better I now feel, there really is no need to suffer."
Mrs C-D, Fundenhall

FAQ

Many people come to acupuncture for help with specific symptoms or to relieve specific pains like osteoarthritis of the knee. Some use acupuncture because they feel generally unwell but have no obvious diagnosis. Others choose acupuncture simply to enhance their feeling of wellbeing. Acupuncture is considered suitable for all ages including babies and children. It can be used effectively alongside conventional medicine.
Acupuncture works to help maintain your body's equilibrium. It involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body to regulate the flow of 'qi', your body's vital energy. For a number of lifestyle and environmental reasons, qi can become disturbed, depleted or blocked, which can result in some symptoms of pain and illness. In certain instances, traditional acupuncture can be an effective therapy to help restore balance and promote physical and emotional harmony. Treatment is aimed at the root of your condition as well as your main symptoms. This approach helps with resolving your problem and enhancing your feeling of wellbeing. You may notice other niggling problems resolve as your main health complaint improves. Acupuncture originated in China and other far eastern cultures where it still features in mainstream healthcare, both as a stand-alone therapy and in combination with conventional western medicine. Acupuncture is now widely used and accepted all over the world. In the UK more and more people are finding out what acupuncture can do for them.
Some people turn to acupuncture for help with a specific symptom or condition. Others choose to have treatment to help maintain good health, as a preventive measure, or simply to improve their general sense of wellbeing. Because traditional acupuncture aims to treat the whole person rather than specific symptoms in isolation, it can be effective for a range of conditions. Remember that acupuncturists treat the person, not just the condition which they have, so each patient’s treatment plan will be different. However, you can always ask your practitioner about other patients’ experiences, to give you an idea of what to expect. Many people return to acupuncture again and again because they find it so beneficial and relaxing. You can get more information on current scientific research into the effectiveness of acupuncture by visiting www.acupuncture.org.uk
Sometimes a small bruise can appear at a needle site. Occasionally, people can feel dizzy or tired after a treatment but this passes quickly.
Acupuncture needles are so fine that most people don't feel them being inserted. It is normal to feel a mild tingle or dull ache as the acupuncturist adjusts the needle to direct qi. Most people feel deeply relaxed during the treatment.
This depends on the individual patient. Generally the more acute a condition, the quicker it can be resolved - sometimes this can occur in just one or two treatments. More chronic conditions can take longer and may require lifestyle changes (which Nicola will advise on). For these long term conditions, Nicola feels that five sessions may be necessary to notice any major changes, and because of this she offers a discounted five treatment package. Initially, the treatments will be closer together, usually every fortnight but will then reduce in frequency as your body responds.
Two research studies conducted in 2011 and 2012 concluded that when practiced by properly trained and qualified traditional acupuncturists, such as members of the BAcC, the risk of adverse effects from acupuncture is extremely low.

Just an opinion...

Every year, the British Acupuncture Council devote a week to the promotion of acupuncture. You’ll see a rise of articles in the national press, local promotions, more feeds on social media. Sometime
