"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

"Very pleased to let you know that the pain I have had 'for ages' in my left buttock has become intermittent. It seems, sometimes, to try to come back and then thinks better of it! It is so strange for it not to be there. Marvellous feeling. Very well done. You obviously treated exactly the right spot."
Mrs A, Eaton


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, both physical and emotional. 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. With Traditional acupuncture, 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. From a Western Medical point of view, the physical insertion of needles may be seen to trigger the body to respond in a neurological, hormonal or other physiological way. is a great resource for examining the scientific evidence behind acupuncture.
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.
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.
Acupuncture works cumulatively in a series of treatments. Acute cases take around six treatments, and chronic, ten or more. Ideally treatment should be given at least weekly for the first two or three treatments, and then as symptoms improve, this can be spaced out to fortnightly and then monthly. Progress will be assessed throughout but if there are no changes initiated by the fourth treatment, we will discuss whether acupuncture is the best approach, or whether another therapy may be more suitable. Patients with previous chronic conditions often continue to come for monthly acupuncture sessions as a 'tune up'. Others enjoy a seasonal treatment every three months to keep themselves balanced and in good health.
