Nine Springs Natural Health Centre opened a new Community Acupuncture Clinic early in 2009. This provides quality treatment at a lower cost.

This was something dear to the heart of Nine Springs' Directors -Jane Robinson and Lesley Jenkins - both highly trained acupuncturists with 30 years' experience.  They wanted to make acupuncture affordable and available to a wider community in and around Yeovil.


Acupuncture has been shown to be highly effective in treating many health disorders, but until now has only been available to those who can afford the costs of one-to-one consultations. Acupuncture can be beneficial in treating a wide range of illnesses and symptoms – from circulatory problems to neurological problems, headaches and back pain to general feelings of ill health or low energy.


They use a large room with four treatment couches, screened off from each other. This means that both of them are able to move from one patient to another without leaving anyone unattended. Initial consultations are held in a separate private room in order to maintain confidentiality.


Jane Robinson spent some time working in a hospital in Nanjing, China in 2004, where patients went in for acupuncture about 3 times per week.  She returned home feeling frustrated that in the UK people were not able to attend as often as they need to because of the prohibitive cost; she was determined to find a way to provide acupuncture treatment in a similar way to the Chinese system of healthcare. 


Treating more often is better for more acute conditions such as back problems, sports injuries, after strokes, helping with IVF treatment or pregnancy sickness.


The Community Acupuncture Clinic is available on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.

Costs from the 1st September 2017 are £50 for the initial consultation and £25 for each subsequent treatment.
