Acupuncture is an effective therapeutic modality based on inserting fine needles in specific points of the human body to stimulate a direct healing response. More detailed information about how acupuncture works can be found on the Evidence-Based Acupuncture website.
I am passionate about treating patients for a broad range of physical and internal health conditions, including muscle tension, restricted movement and pain, joint swelling and pain, headache and migraine, stress and emotional strain, anxiety and depression, insomnia, chronic fatigue, weakened immunity, digestive disorders and poor gut health, allergies, skin rashes, hormonal imbalance, acne, menstrual irregularities and low fertility.
I also have a particular interest in Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture which is not only a cosmetic approach but a wholistic treatment designed to optimise your general health and wellbeing, while improving the condition and appearance of your skin. The ongoing benefits of Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture become increasingly apparent over time, as it stimulates local blood and lymph circulation, increases collagen and elastin, enhances moisture-retention, tightens pores and noticeably slows down the ageing of your skin. Treatments are highly personalised and based on each individual’s specific concerns, age, lifestyle and quality of health.
I may also recommend Chinese Herbal Medicine as part of your treatment and healing strategy.
Individual herbs and formulas are derived from specific parts of plants, such as flowers, leaves, stems, roots, bark, seeds etc, to nourish and support blood quality and improve the function of internal organs and bodily systems. Today, quality-controlled herbal capsules make it easy to incorporate the potency of Chinese herbs into an active, modern lifestyle.
