I have been involved in the world of Eastern Healing modalities for over 15 years. My acupuncture training was at the BSc degree course at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine (CICM). Since then I have taken numerous professional development courses.
I am also a shiatsu teacher and since 2008 have been the principal of East West College, providing specialist courses for the acupuncture and shiatsu professions.
I have been interested in Chinese medicine since 1987 when travelling in China where I was involved in a serious bike accident. I met a blind Chinese medicine practitioner there who used a variety of effective methods to heal my injured arm, and this planted the seed for my acupuncture practice.
Acupuncture is a form of therapy in which fine needles are inserted into specific points on the body. I may also use a smouldering herb called ‘moxa’ to warm these points, and cupping therapy to ease muscular pain.
Acupuncture: What to expect?
Acupuncture aims to rebalance the body, naturally boosting vitality and easing any tension and anxiety. It lasts approximately 45 minutes in duration. I will first take a detailed medical history to better understand the condition that you are coming with, this is an important step, and expect to answer a variety of questions about both your physical and sometimes emotional condition.
Acupuncture: What does it treat?
An acupuncture practitioner treats lots of conditions, just like a GP might. My top treatments include acupuncture for back, neck and shoulder pain and acupuncture for fertility. I have a special interest in the treatment of the effect of bereavement: part of the wide spectrum of approaches of acupuncture for mental health including anxiety and depression. More information about conditions can be found here on my website.
Once your main complaint has been properly treated, I offer a special monthly treatment for keeping well. Overall my treatment aim to treat both symptoms and also the person themselves: to rebalance their energy, and ensure the person feels better in themselves: better from the inside out.
This is a traditional acupuncture treatment; the form of which is very similar to treatment that has been practiced for the last twenty centuries in the East, and whose structure is based on the world’s longest unbroken medical literary tradition. It is an extremely safe technique, with very high standards of hygiene and training. Degree level training and continuing professional development ensure a professional approach.
Acupuncture: Does it work?
In a word: yes! There is growing scientific evidence for the validity of the acupuncture approach for and number of conditions. For more on that please see the individual condition fact-sheets here:
