Traditional Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture

"I've been suffering from a lingering virus and had tried numerous treatments to no avail.... After the first acupuncture session, my muscle aches related to the infection, disappeared. I was amazed how beneficial it was for my congestion too, something I didn't expect to be helped by acupuncture. Over the course of my treatments, my sleep improved and I felt my overall recovery boosted. Gaby took great care of my needs and wellbeing during the sessions and I cannot recommend her enough. Thank You!!"

Whilst it was not until 1979 that the World Health Organisation formally announced the efficacy of acupuncture in treating over forty different diseases,​ acupuncture has in fact been in continual use for over 2000 years. Traditional Chinese Medicine is an ancient medical system, still used side-by-side with western medicine in hospitals in China, to this day, as a highly effective form of alternative medicine. Often, Traditional Chinese Medicine - the combined use of Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture, moxa, massage, nutrition and cupping - is able to treat a patient holistically, at the source of their problems - where western medicine rather tends to treat the most pressing symptoms instead of the root cause.

Through diagnosis of a patient's tongue, pulse, eyes and face, it is possible to read what is going on in their body with relation to system imbalances, Blood or Qi stagnation, organ or blood deficiencies or excessive conditions - such as pain, inflammation or infection. 

Acupuncture can be used to treat a wide range of complaints but most commonly is used to treat musclo-skeletal pain, fatigue, migraines, pain, water retention/oedema, digestive issues, feeling generally unwell, insomnia, infertility, menstrual problems, stress, depression, grief, anxiety, inflammation, post-viral issues, asthma, skin conditions, haemorrhoids and nausea. Treatments are totally bespoke according to the patient's needs and diagnosis. Acupuncture can be deeply relaxing and releasing, providing relief from stress and tension, invigorating one's overall sense of balance and wellbeing.
