Spider vein & Varicose vein reduction with Acupuncture

Acupuncture can assist in the reduction, resolution or improvement of

  • Spider Veins
  • Varicose Ulcers
  • Varicose Veins
  • Peripheral blood circulation


For many people, the reduction in spider veins and varicose veins comes down to a matter of appearance, though for others these conditions can be quite painful and inflamed. Whatever your reasons for wanting to reduce these conditions are, it’s a good idea, left unchecked; varicosities increase your risk of developing blood clots, localised eczema, skin breakdown and ulceration and in very rare cases forms of skin cancer.


It is the medical consensus that spider veins and varicose veins are caused by faulty backflow valves found in veins. The job of these valves is to stop blood from travelling backwards in the vein on its return to the heart. When these valves lose efficiency blood begins to pool in the vein and local capillaries causing varicose and spider veins.

Using a combination of Acupuncture and Chinese herbs, we can improve the condition of the veins and involved organs to allow for improved circulation and more efficient venous return, resulting in long-term reduction and prevention of forming or reforming the condition.

In the short-term, localised techniques are employed to reduce or resolve the appearance of spider veins and varicose veins, often showing immediate improvement after the first session.

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine is a safe, natural, cost-effective and comparatively non-invasive alternative to conventional spider and varicose veins treatment with less inflammation, fewer side effects and virtually no recovery time.
