Healing Point Acupuncture

About the practice

We offer in-depth expert consultation and a full range of Chinese medical treatments.

Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine (as the treatment modalities for Chinese Medicine) are considered complimentary medicine (CAM) in the UK. These can either be used as ‘standalone’ treatments or in conjunction with biomedicine to either enhance or assist with biomedical treatment side-effects like in the case of cancer.

Here, treatment is holistic and based on the free flow of Qi, creating well-being and restoring health. This approach isn’t stagnant in the past, but incorporates new research and biomedical knowledge of health. My practice is informed by the latest protocols in areas of IVF and fertility and the latest research from leaders in their fields concerning chronic ailments such as endometriosis, PCOS, UTIs, anxiety and menopausal symptoms, whilst following ancient wisdom in promoting health.
