Health, Vitality and Balance
You know how your car feels when it has just been serviced? Running "like a well oiled machine", everything checked and tuned into perfect balance. This is quite a good analogy for traditional acupuncture treatment.
Can acupuncture help me?
Tired? Stressed? Anxious? Low mood or mood swings? Constantly catching cold? IBS and digestive problems? Joint or back pain? Tense shoulders, teeth grinding? Worrying about your fertility? Painful periods? PMT? Menopausal symptoms? Insomnia? Sports injuries? Not feeling quite right?
In traditional Chinese medicine we look for the patterns of imbalance that underlie your symptoms and work to bring these back into harmony. We look at you, the whole person. You may have the same medical diagnosis as someone else, for example unexplained infertility, but your personal experience is unique to you.
Widely used in many countries, acupuncture is listed by the World Health Organisation as helpful for many conditions. You can find a summary of research into acupuncture and IVF here. In the UK, acupuncture is available within the NHS for low back pain, and many doctors and physiotherapists and even some vets use acupuncture to relieve pain. I have been studying and practising traditional Chinese medicine for over 20 years, including postgraduate training in infertility, trauma and skin problems. It is endlessly fascinating, and you are welcome to contact me with any questions, I feel privileged whenever I have the opportunity to use it to benefit someone.
