I treat each patient as an individual.  I am happy to advise on the best treatment option sometimes using a combined approach works best.

Traditional Chinese Medicine always starts with a Full health Consultation.

This includes asking about past illnesses, medications, and a current health profile

Acupuncture involves the use of very fine,

sterile needles.These needles are nothing like hypodermic needles they are very fine

and do not feel painful.

Sometimes acupuncture is combined with 

massage , heat and cupping

Chinese Herbal Medicines can be prescribed as a stand alone treatment or may be combined with Acupuncture treatment.Herbs can be prescribed in easy to take granular form .

During your first consultation I will take the time to listen to you and take account of you health past and present so that i can formulate a "TCM" diagnosis.

I will then explain this to you and together we will formulate a treatment plan to suit your needs

My approach is always to find a way to get the best, long lasting

results in the shortest space of time at the lowest cost to you.

My priority is always your health and any advice I give is with that in mind, it might even mean I say I cannot treat you but I will send you to your Doctor or another practitioner 

 NST  bowen therapy is a gentle hands on therapy which is an ideal complement to 

Chinese Medicine .It can be a really effective therapy to correct musculoskeletal problems and can be excellent when people are experiencing extreme tightness ,spasm and pain.

Qi gong and Tai Qi are excellent forms of exercise to help maintain health and well being ,it is gentle and can even be done seated .I find that I often give people a Qigong exercise to do at home between treatments and there is also the opportunity to join a small class

 Chinese Medicine in its richness inspires me by being able to help you

find great results through treatments.

However I feel that it is equally important to empower you with the knowledge 

to take control of your own health

 In Western medicine we

have become used to taking 

medicine that has an instant 

result.

Sometimes that 's just what we 

need but in TCM we try to treat

the whole person not just the

symptom and that can take a

little longer to achieve

That all sounds great but how many treatments do I need ?

I always say to people think of it as a three stage process...

Stage 1

We make a measurable change to your symptoms, to do this it make take as little as one or two sessions if it is a simple problem. However for a more complex 

picture you may be looking at at least three sessions before symptoms start to change. during this time I usually see people once a week or even twice a week.

Stage 2 

We start to see a more lasting amelioration of the symptoms you came in with as well as a general improvement in well being.  At this stage either you can stop treatment or in most cases we spread out the visits to fortnightly or monthly

Stage 3

At this stage we look at stopping symptoms from returning.  this may mean changes in lifestyle, diet and exercise.

You may be keen to try the Tai Chi, Qigong, Yoga, Meditation, Mindfulness and or some of the other activities offered within the centre.

Some people find that they like to have a treatment once every few weeks or months as maintenance
