”We must strive to see people not only as they present themselves in illness, but more importantly as they would be in perfect health and balance, in full discovery of their true nature, unique in body, mind and spirit” ~ Prof. J R Worsley
Rooted in ancient wisdom, traditional ‘five element’ acupuncture is a 3,000 year old healing practice, originating from China. Traditional acupuncture provides a complete system of medicine, which diagnoses and treats the root causes of disease and works to restore both physical and emotional harmony throughout the body.
Treatments: Following an initial consultation, ongoing treatments involve the use of fine needles and moxibustion to stimulate acupuncture points throughout the body’s meridian system. Treatments are tailored to each patient’s unique needs, taking in to account their overall constitution, as well as managing a wide range of physical and emotional symptoms.
Also available – auricular acupuncture and cupping therapy can be booked as a standalone treatment.
Please note: From October 2023 – February 2024, I will be practising as a pre-qualifying intern practitioner, in the last six months of my third year honours degree level training and I have received permission to practice under indirect supervision. This means that my treatment records are subject to scrutiny by supervisors who are fully qualified members of the British
Acupuncture Council. I am fully insured, and my course is accredited by the British Acupuncture Accreditation Board (BAAB.co.uk), covering acupuncture theory, clinical skills, point location, conventional medical sciences, research and professional development.
How many treatments will I need? Typically, weekly treatments are recommended for the first five sessions, reducing in frequency as you respond to treatment.
The British Acupuncture Council has published A-Z evidence factsheets for a wide range of common conditions. Please visit the Resources page for further information.
