Referred Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese Medicinal Acupuncture (TCM) has been found to be beneficial for many health conditions and can also promote deep relaxation

We offer a subsidised service for people who have chronic mental, physical and emotional health issues and low incomes. Conditions include depression, stress & anxiety to more physical conditions such as chronic pain, chronic fatigue syndrome or forms of cancer.

If you would like to receive acupuncture here, ask your Doctor, a medical professional, healthcare practitioner or support worker to refer you to us.

We will contact you once your referral has gone through, then you can book

40mins, Wednesdays (multi-bed clinic with 2-3 beds in the room)

1 x treatment per week, 6 treatments in total - after this, cost may be subject to change

£5 - £25 (to be agreed before first treatment)

The Referral Process:

  • Your Doctor/healthcare practitioner/support worker needs to contact us to make the referral
  • They will pass on your contact details and explain the reason for the referral. To do this, they simply ring 0113 234 0818 – it will take just a few minutes.
  • We will call you to confirm we have received your referral and give you further information about our service. We will also agree the cost of your treatments.
  • You can book your first appointment!

There is no waiting list for this service – you can book straightaway or call us back to book at a time that suits you. 

What to expect:

  • When you arrive at Phoenix, you’ll be greeted by our friendly Reception team
  • Your acupuncturist will come to you and take you to your room (this will have 2 or 3 beds set up in it)
  • They will ask you a few questions to help understand what you’d like from the treatment
  • Acupuncture is a targeted treatment, so you will only need to remove clothing in the area being treated. The acupuncturist will advise on this
  • Privacy screens are available should you like to have one
  • The acupuncturist will carry out the treatment and then leave you for a little while to let the treatment run it’s course. Often people drift off at this point, it is very calming
  • They will then come back in the room to remove the needles and bring you water. Again, privacy screens are available should you need to re-dress
  • They will share after-care tips tailored to you

Our Acupuncturists:

  • Highly skilled & experienced
  • Motivated by helping others feel good
  • Fully qualified
  • Have professional indemnity insurance and police checked
  • Members of a relevant professional body that requires them to undertake continuing professional development
