Dr Connell also takes extra steps to ensure that the acupuncture treatment itself doesn’t contribute to any pain a patient may be experiencing.

In many instances, pain relief can be immediate and patients have even reported a euphoric sensation during the acupuncture treatments.

Dr Connell has been an acupuncturist a long time and is very experienced. We will make every effort to make you comfortable with the whole acupuncture process.
