Andrew Oldroyd - Acupuncturist, Bath
Andrew says "Since ACUPUNCTURE works by stimulating the
body's own healing processes, we can treat many conditions,
anything in fact where the body is capable, with a little help,
of creating it's own healing. In effect we are treating the person
and not the illness"
