Acupuncture: safe, gentle and effective
Are you curious to learn what traditional acupuncture can do for you? Would you like a free pulse and tongue diagnosis? Come see me for a free chat at our open day and we can discuss how acupuncture works and whether it is the right thing for you right now.
From 2pm til 5pm on Saturday October 6th, The Practice Rooms in Clifton Village will be opening its doors so you can meet its lovely practitioners and therapists and get a feel for what an inviting and beautiful place this centre is. There will be free food and drink and many complementary-therapist practitioners, from counsellors to acupuncturists to a variety of massage practitioners but to name a few, will be on hand to offer free taster sessions and answer any questions you may have about their therapies.
The Practice Rooms is located at 24 Regent Street, Clifton, Bristol, BS8 4HG. The entrance is just to the right of the charity shop. There is free on-street parking in the area as well as metered spaces.
I hope to see you there!
While some of you may know already, I am now offering treatment at two new locations. You can find me in Stoke Bishop at the Helios Medical Centre and also in Clifton Village at The Practice Rooms.
Helios Medical Centre provides conventional medicine as well as offering holistic and complementary approaches. The centre is on beautifully landscaped grounds and has free parking. It is located just over the north side of the Bristol Downs on Stoke Hill and is very close to Bristol University’s botanical gardens. You can also easily travel here on the 40 bus with First Great Western or on the U6 Wessex Red service.
The newly opened Practice Rooms in Clifton Village has charming and welcoming rooms for your treatment. It is conveniently located on Regent Street, on the doorsteps of numerous popular coffee bars, restaurants and colourful boutique shops. There is free on-street parking in the area as well as metered parking and car parks. Alternatively, First Great Western busses 8 and 9 pass by frequently.
Treatments at these locations cost £35 for regular treatments (about 50 minutes) while first visits cost £50 (90 minutes). I do offer concessionary rates in some circumstances so please do ask.
To make an appointment at either location, you can contact me directly on my mobile: 07840265903. Please note that at Helios and The Practice Rooms I only accept cash or cheque.
Helios Medical Centre, 17 Stoke Hill, Stoke Bishop, Bristol, BS9 1JN.

Hello dear visitor,
With Spring blooming all around us it seems an appropriate time to start this blog. I hope you will find here ideas that get you thinking, answers to some of your questions about traditional acupuncture and thoughts about health and well-being.
If you are reading this, you probably have an interest in learning what traditional acupuncture and its related therapies can do for you. This very old system of health offers improvement to a vast range of conditions. As advertising restrictions in the UK currently limit me to listing conditions where acupuncture has undergone rigourous randomised double blind trials with verifiable positive outcomes, I am able to (proudly) say that it has proven to show clear benefit in the following conditions:
– tension-related headaches
– knee pain such as that related to osteoarthritis when used as an adjunct therapy
– temporary relief of lower backache
– and migraines
However it is important to bear in mind that traditional acupuncture is a highly developed and individualised system. What does this mean? It means that for each person there may be a different cause for a problem (or a series of problems) and that a condition might manifest in one way for you and in another way for someone else. Fortunately traditional acupuncture is not a one-size-fits-all system and practitioners look at each person with fresh eyes on a case-by-case basis.
If you would like to learn if a health-related condition familiar to you has been the focus of acupuncture research, a good place to start is on the British Acupuncture Council website. To go directly to the information pages, go to evidence-based information about acupuncture. Additionally, the World Health Organisation sets out on its website a vast range of health problems and conditions that it believes can be improved with traditional acupuncture: World Health Organisation and acupuncture.
Or if you prefer, feel free to give me a call or drop me a line and we can talk about your specific situation. My mobile number is 07840 265 903 and you can reach me by email on email@example.com.
Check back here as I will be updating this section very soon with some new developments.
Thanks for reading.
