In-clinic Acupuncture appointments available from 16th March 2021.
I operate a hormone specialist acupuncture clinic and have supported many women over the years to understand their symptoms and help live life to the fullest.
Working with the British Acupuncture Council I operate a Covid Safe clinic.
What to expect?
We will spend at 1.5 hrs together in total. Around 30-45 minutes of this will be discussing your symptoms and understanding your treatment aims. This initial consultation can be conducted on-line or in clinic.
We will discuss any recent hormone testing you have undergone and / or discuss what tests may be advisable e.g. levels of progesterone, testosterone, estrogen. If you would find it useful we can work together to know what questions to ask your GP.
We will discuss what is happening to your body and why you are feeling the way you are.
You will then come into clinic for an acupuncture session. I will ask to look at your tongue and take your pulse– both are important diagnostic tools in Chinese Medicine and provides more clues to how I can help you and your symptoms.
The needles are precisely located at points to connect with your body’s qi or energy. After our detailed consultation, points are decided which are right for you covering every aspect of your health and lifestyle.
I use needles that are so fine that most people don’t feel them being inserted. It is normal to feel a mild tingle or dull ache as the needles may be adjusted. While the needles are in place most people feel deeply relaxed which can continue after they are removed.
I treat many patients who are anxious about needles or are needle phobic. I work with them very gently and carefully to make sure the treatment is always a good experience. Often after the first session they comment that they wished they had come sooner as it has benefitted them so much.
My style of acupuncture practice is an integration of classical Chinese Medicine, contemporary acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Five Elements and Stems and Branches.
