Treatment using Acupuncture

and Chinese Medicine

What can Chinese Medicine Treat?


The Chinese philosophy of interconnection can explain how by optimising the functioning of the body, many conditions improve simultaneously. Often other areas of health improve alongside the main condition.  


Every treatment is tailored to the individual and the symptoms presenting at the time. Therefore it is rare that two people are treated in exactly the same way, even if they are suffering from the same condition. However most conditions can be treated.


The individuality of the treatment is reflected in the thorough initial diagnosis which, including the first treatment, takes approximately 1.5 hours. Each following treatment is for 1 hour.


Chinese Medicine will usually involve a combination of acupuncture, moxibustion, gua-sha, cupping, massage herbal medicine and heat radiation. However many conditions are best treated by just one or two of these approaches.  For example musculoskeletal problems are often treated with heat radiation and needling. 

Dietary therapy may be an important aspect of any situation.

Chinese Herbal Medicine

Herbal formulas are used to increase the success of acupuncture or as stand alone medicine to benefit particular conditions. I provide tailor made prescriptions and the herbs are available fresh or as easy to take granules.


Neuro-Linguistic Programming

NLP helps us achieve our life goals. This may be when our thought processes or emotions are preventing us from moving forwards. For example when addictions, fears and unpleasant past experiences hold us back from a happy healthy lifestyle. 

Gua Sha & Cupping

Ancient Chinese techniques which affect the fascia to free the path of Qi in the deeper levels of the body, addressing 'hard to move', frozen or painful conditions by unlocking deep tension of the muscles.

Both can enhance the immune system and help release colds, flu and inflammation.

May be used alongside acupuncture.
