Acupuncture and Tuina practitioner

In Chinese medicine the focus is the patients overall health, we treat the root of the cause not just the symptom.

At your first appointment a full health history will be taken, you will also receive a short treatment to prepare your body for future treatments.

Acupuncture needles are sterile and single use, some are retained for 15-20 minutes whilst others are inserted and removed straight away.

The most common points are located on legs and arms.

Acupuncture can treat a range of conditions such as muscular skeletal pain, fertility, woman’s health, including menopausal symptoms, headaches, long term chronic conditions, fatigue, digestive problems, and sports injuries.

Acupuncture can be very relaxing and it’s surprising how many patients have fallen asleep during treatment!


Tuina is a form of medical massage and usually incorporates most of the body not just the area causing the problem. The massage takes place over your clothing, so it is advisable to wear loose cotton clothing. Tuina is especially good at treating chronic muscular and joint pain.

It is beneficial for conditions such as fibromyalgia, arthritis, sciatica, muscle spasms, sports injuries, neck, shoulder and back pain.
