Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Acupuncture

£50 (initial treatment including full consultation please allow up to 1.5 hours)

£45 (subsequent treatments 45 mins)

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Acupuncture has been practiced for many centuries. Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific acupuncture points on the body stimulating channels or meridians where Qi flows. TCM determines and treats the root cause of disease and illness rather than just the symptoms; it takes a different approach to Western medicine and is often used complementary to the Western model of medicine.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine a human being is thought to be a microcosm of the macrocosm; the whole universe. TCM observes Nature and does not view humans as being separate from Nature. If there is pain or disharmony in the body there will be some form of stagnation; if the stagnation is removed so will the pain bringing balance back to the internal landscape. An in depth consultation is carried to make a TCM diagnosis which involves looking at the tongue, feeling the pulses and observing a persons individual constitution as well as discussing lifestyle, diet and sleep patterns.

A course of Acupuncture sessions is usually required to begin with especially for chronic conditions. Acupuncture has a culminative effect and a bespoke treatment plan will be discussed with you at the initial session. After the initial treatment I will recommend lifestyle changes, informed by TCM Yangsheng (nurturing life) practices, to help get the most benefit from each treatment and to support you between appointments. This may includes dietary advice from a TCM perspective, sleep advice based on the TCM body clock and incorporating breathwork and movement practices such as Qigong.

Acupuncture can be used to treat various conditions both acute and chronic. In my practice I work with various conditions including hormonal imbalances, peri-menopause, menopause, fertility, acute and chronic injuries, pain management, fatigue, mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression and also cancer. I may include other forms of TCM within an acupuncture treatment such as Moxibustion. This will be discussed with you before each session.

Traditional Fire Cupping £35 (45 mins)

Traditional Fire Cupping has been used in many ancient cultures including Traditional Chinese Medicine. Cupping is an ancient practice where a cup is applied to the skin and pressure in the cup is reduced using heat to create a vacuum. The superficial muscle layer is drawn up into the cup and pulls out toxin build to the surface of the skin. It works manually to remove stagnation, increase Blood and the smooth flow of Qi. The marks left after cupping are not bruises and the body will naturally clear them within 5-7 days depending on individual constitution and severity of toxins within the body. Cupping reaches into joint and muscle where manual massage therapy cant making it an incredibly powerful therapy and medicine. The back can also store a lot of emotional energy so this treatment is also excellent for helping to release stuck and heavy emotional energy within the body. Traditional Fire Cupping is often used in conjunction with other aspects of TCM treatments such as Acupuncture.

I offer a combination treatment of TCM Acupuncture and Traditional Fire Cupping for £70 for existing acupuncture clients (clients who have already had a consultation with me and treatments within 3 months) and £75 for new clients who have not had acupuncture with me before.

Gua Sha on the face uses a much lighter pressure and helps promote the smooth flow of Qi and Blood bringing vitality to the inner and outer landscape. The face is a microsystem and reflects the internal states within the body.

Reflexology

Foot Reflexology £40 (45 mins)

Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary therapy based on the theory that the different organs and systems within the body correspond to reflex points on the feet, lower legs, hands, face and ears. By working at the periphery Reflexology aims to promote an inner response. Reflexology can help promote relaxation, support wellbeing, reduce tension, dis-ease and improve sleep. As a professional Reflexologist I do not diagnose or cure. I work with individuals holistically and many people receive Reflexology complementary to other allopathic medicines and treatments. If you would like a full Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) diagnosis and treatment plan TCM Acupuncture would be recommended.

Auricular acupuncture can be included in the Foot Reflexology treatment for £50. This can be especially helpful and potent for supporting with hormonal issues, fertility, pain management and emotional issues.

More information about Reflexology can be found here.

Reiki £35 (60 mins)

Reiki is beautiful invitation to journey within. Reiki can be translated as ‘universal life energy’ and is also used to describe a system of natural healing. Taught from a traditional Japanese perspective; the teachings of Reiki are something I hold very dearly. Energy maintains all living things and when it flows freely, we experience a sense of wellbeing. The relaxing nature of Reiki may be supportive during difficult times, stressful periods and when we feel overwhelmed or disconnected from ourselves.
