I have practised 5 Element Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine since 1998, when I graduated from the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading. My initial enquiry into acupuncture andother healing methods stemmed from travels through Asia, where holistic medicine is incorporated into daily life. On my return to the UK, I trained and subsequently worked as an acupuncturist, as well as in the field of nutrition and in personal development.
Chinese medicine is the longest continuous medical system known to man. By the end of the Tang dynasty in the 10th century, five centuries before the birth of Western medicine, the Chinese had alreadydeveloped a highly comprehensive body of medical knowledge and methods, many of which were far in advance of the West.

We provide high quality acupuncture treatment at affordable rates. We are able to do this because we run what is called a multibed clinic. This means that for all subsequent treatments we see patientsat 20 minute intervals and then allow you to relax with your needles in while we see the next patient. This allows us to pass the cost savings on to you the patient. While you are relaxing with your needles, each patient is given a bell with which you can call your acupuncturist at any time.
Acupuncture is an holistic approach to health based on over 2000 years of developments and refinements in the Far East. It is a system of healing which focuses on improving the overall well being of aperson, rather than the isolated treatment of specific symptoms. Acupuncture emphasizes the importance of both physical and emotional health.
Although it is fascinating to know that acupuncture has evolved over thousands of years, all that is eclipsed by how useful this style of medicine is proving to be now, in the present day. Because ofits ingenious practical application, people from all walks of life are turning to acupuncture to find solutions to both physical and emotional conditions. There is good, old-fashioned common sense running through the theory and practice of acupuncture, based on natural patterns.
Traditional acupunctureis based on the principle that the health of the body and mind is dependent on the appropriate functioning of the energy systems that connect with and support every part of us.Acupuncture is used to tune these energy systems in order to bring about beneficial changes in health.
