Acupuncture uses very fine sterile needles, which are inserted into points along meridians (channels), promoting the body’s natural healing response to restore balance. Electro acupuncture (using a small electrical impulse) can be used for muscular skeletal injuries or for pain.
Scientific based research has shown how acupuncture can be used to treat many 21st century health conditions, www.acupuncture.org.uk/research-fact-sheets
Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine

The use of herbal medicine is regulated by the RCHM www.rchm.co.uk/ in conjunction with other herbal medicine organizations to maintain a high standard of clinical care and research.
‘We are what we eat’, or to put in another way ‘we are what we put in our mouths’.
I support a nutritional therapy based on eating well and when needed using supplementation.
How It Works, Your First Consultation
First Consultation time– 60 - 75 minutes
Free 15 minute consultations before your first session: in clinic or by phone
Follow-ups - 45 minutes
Tradition Chinese Medicine TCM looks at the body as a whole, a web of many interconnecting layers, which come together to make each and everyone of us unique. At your first session you will be asked about what outcomes you would like to achieve, about your medical history, diet, eating habits, sleep patterns, and lifestyle so a diagnosis can be made and a customised healing program can be agreed upon to support your body to full recovery.
Your program could include a combination of acupuncture, herbs and nutrition. We will meet during your program for regular treatments and adjustments depending on your progress. Or individual sessions are available.
In addition to our meetings, I provide email support to answer any questions you have and offer additional information about acupuncture, cupping, moxa, tui na, herbs and nutrition.
