John Donegan Acupuncture

I am a fully qualified Traditional Acupuncturist, and trained at the Northern College of Acupuncture in York.

I provide a range of therapies including Acupuncture and Tuina (Chinese therapeutic massage). I also teach Tai Chi and Qigong (Chinese exercise to promote health and wellbeing).

Traditional acupuncture is a holistic healthcare system. It considers pain and illness, whether physical or mental, are a sign that the body is out of balance. We consider physical health and mental health to be interconnected and recognise the role emotions play in illness and disease. The overall aim of our treatment is to restore the body's equilibrium. My main aim is to correcting the underlying cause of illness which will be different for every individual. Consequently, there are no 'off-the-peg' treatments or points prescriptions. Because every patient is unique, two people with the same western diagnosis will each receive different acupuncture treatments.
