Conditions Treated

I use Acupuncture to treat physical and emotional conditions and I use western measurements of progress as well as my patients' feedback of progress. Nutrition can be used as part of my Acupuncture treatment or on its own. Food as a “medicine” is a vital healing principle; however I find that combining the two therapies works especially well.

Acupuncture is successful in treating many conditions, including but not limited to:

This list is not exhaustive. If you have a condition that is not listed here but would like to find out if Acupuncture can help you, please ring or email me.

Diagnosis and Treatment

A diagnosis involves the identification of my patient’s constitutional make-up. I will ask you about your main complaint and take details of your full health history, including personal and family medical history. I will also use my own observations such as examining your pulse and tongue to confirm my diagnosis. This information tells me the story of your health and lets me know how and why things may not be working as well as they could or should.

As most Acupuncturists will, I treat based on your individual needs, taking into consideration age, symptoms, general constitution and life circumstances. A typical course of treatment would initially be four weekly treatments followed by fortnightly intervals and then perhaps proceeding to a monthly basis with an aim to treat occasionally thereafter. Some conditions may take longer; this I will explain at the consultation.
