Acupuncture -Patchway, Charlton Hayes, Bristol
Treat the whole person, not just the symptoms
I'm a qualified acupuncturist and naturopath and a member of the BAcC. I will usually include recommendations concerning lifestyle factors and diet aimed at improving symptoms and health during treatment sessions.
I also use additional therapies such as cupping and gua sha where necessary.
Acupuncture is amazing. It can help a huge variety of problems, from physical problems, such as back pain and sciatica, to emotional ones, such as irritability and anxiety. It treats the whole person and not just the symptoms as it aims to find the cause. The treatment given for the same condition in several people can be very different because it can be caused for different reasons.
I became interested in studying acupuncture after it helped me with some issues that no one else seemed interested in or could help with. And with each treatment I wanted to know why it helped whereas other treatments had not. I come from a scientific background and so was constantly questioning the theories behind Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnosis. I believe that they do have rational explanation in scientific terms, but this is not widely publicised.
What I aim to do is to get to the root of a problem. Sometimes there is a quick fix, and sometimes there isn't, but I hope to make a difference.
I'm based in Charlton Hayes/Patchway, north Bristol, close to the old Filton Airfield site. I have a range of available clinic times so please get in touch to find out how I can help you and when.
