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.

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.

Ah, time for the dreaded personal profile, there's nothing worse than having to talk about yourself. Well, I used to work in advertising (boo hiss I hear you say), in big agencies in London, whilstmis spending my youth in the most extravagent, and at the time, enjoyable ways.
