My Specialisms

ACUPUNCTURE is suitable for people of all ages and for a wide variety of conditions. The treatment is widely considered to be beneficial for a range of symptoms resulting from illness or from clearly defined complaints, or to improve general feelings of well-being and help with relaxation. Conditions that respond to treatment with acupuncture are: nausea, vomiting, dental pain, temporary relief of pain associated with osteoarthritis of the knee (along with exercise and conventional medicine) relief from tension headaches and migraine-type headaches, and many more. If you would like to find out more about how acupuncture can help you, please call us to talk to one of our practitioners.

NUTRITION At the Northern College of Acupuncture nutrition teaching clinic we consider each individual to be unique and recommend a personalised nutrition and lifestyle programme rather than a 'one size fits all' approach. We never recommend nutritional changes as a replacement for medical advice and we refer clients back to their medical professional whenever necessary.

CHINESE HERBAL MEDICINE is suitable for people of all ages and for a wide variety of conditions, and you do not need to have a clear Western medical diagnosis. Herbal medicines can be used to dramatic effect in acute illnesses, but are just as valuable to treat chronic ailments and general health issues. The herbal medicine formulae work to restore the balance of physical health and emotional well-being which, in turn, encourages the body to heal itself more effectively.
