Acupuncture & Oriental HerbsFor More Energy And Better Health
Is an holistic system of healing developed over thousands of years in China, Japan and other eastern countries. It works by stimulating the body’s amazing ability to heal and bring about, often extraordinary and lasting change.
What can it help with?
In my experience, it helps with a wide range of specific symptoms from infancy to old age: pain relief and undiagnosed sensations; and feelings of being unwell. Although the skills and wisdom have been passed down the ages and are well known to practitioners, there is a growing body of Western research showing the benefits of acupuncture with:
- Headache and migraine
- Asthma and allergic rhinitis
- Back pain
- Fertility and menstrual issues
- Sleep problems
- PMS – pre menstrual syndrome
- IBS – irritable bowel syndrome
- Menopausal symptoms
- Skin complaints

How does it work?
Your body uses energy to exist; it flows in patterns and can actually be measured in micro volts. These patterns can be disrupted by negative thoughts, emotions, inappropriate diet and activities – work, sports etc. These imbalances can cause pain, stress and emotional disruption – a myriad of symptoms. My role is like a biological electrician, to return a correct, balanced flow of energy to all areas of the body. This is done through the use of tiny sterile needles placed gently into the body’s energy pathways to stimulate your natural healing systems.
What to expect
For the first consultation I allow an hour and a half, enabling us to really get to the bottom of what is causing your symptoms. I’m interested in treating the root cause as well as symptoms - to give you lasting relief - and this will also include specific recommendations about diet, relaxation, exercises and possible new ways to view a problem.
Follow-up treatments take up to an hour, as I prefer to spend more time with patients for a deeper more lasting result.
Support Your Body To Better Health
Modern oriental medicine is based on a holism of mind, body and spirit, helping to accelerate the natural healing power inherent in the body. It involves a unique treatment plan optimised for healing each individual I work with.
There are times when acupuncture is not enough on its own to bring you back to full health, and I may suggest we use herbs to support your body to achieve the desired results more quickly.
What can herbs help me with?
I tend to use herbs mainly as a tonic, to improve energy and circulation, however oriental herbs have been used for a wide range of symptoms for over 3000 years and are still a fundamental part of healthcare in Eastern hospitals today.
Throughout its history oriental herbal medicine has continually developed in response to changing clinical conditions, and has been sustained by research into every aspect of its use. This process continues today with the development of modern medical diagnostic techniques and knowledge. Conditions researched in the West include:
- Atopic dermatitis
- Atopic eczema
- Cancer - relieving side effects from cancer treatment
- Circulatory disorders
- Female infertility
- Gastro-intestinal disorders
- Gynaecological conditions
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Skin conditions
Are they safe?
The pharmacies I use are controlled by the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency) and to assure the highest quality, all my herbs come from suppliers on an Approved Suppliers Scheme governed by the Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine. I use powders of dried herbs - flowers, leaves, roots, seeds and berries - all dissolved in boiling water like instant coffee and drunk when cool.
TuiNa ("tway na") is an ancient Chinese type of massage therapy practised in hospitals and clinics around the world. It has two broad styles – yin or yang. I sometimes use FSR (Forceless Spontaneous Release), an extremely gentle version of yin tui-na, which, by virtue of its gentle support, is ideal for treating unhealed injuries and in the treatment of Parkinson's Disease (see the Parkinson's Recovery Project www.pdrecovery.org).
