We will respond to your message by email as soon as we can.
If you’d prefer a phone call then that’s fine – leave your details and an indication of when would be convenient for us to call.

If you’d like to know something that isn’t covered here, then please get in touch using the form above!
I’ll ask you to complete a short medical history and consent form, and we will then talk through your current conditions.
I will be making a diagnosis in Traditional Chinese Medicine terms, so that I can plan future treatments.
If you’re new to acupuncture, we can have a chat about what is involved before we go ahead with the first treatment. For more information, see this page.
People find acupuncture helpful for a very wide range of conditions and circumstances. See this page for some of the more common conditions seen in my clinic.
A full list would be impossible – but the British Acupuncture Council have created a list of some of the more common ones, together with supporting fact sheets.
If you’re not sure if acupuncture will be helpful for you, why not arrange a short (free!) conversation with me?
This varies depending on your condition. Generally I will recommend a course of treatments at weekly intervals, but we can discuss this at your first visit.
Acupuncture is one of the safest treatments – whether conventional or complementary – available in the UK, with a very low risk of side effects of any kind.
Here is a report from the British Acupuncture Council.
I only use pre-sterilised, single-use, needles, and follow all best practice in my treatment room and equipment as prescribed by the British Acupuncture Council, of which I am a member.
Most patients describe having a pleasant tingling sensation rather than experiencing any pain. This is largely because acupuncturists use very fine needles, which can be inserted with minimum pressure and disruption to the skin.
Possibly. Many insurers provide cover for all British Acupuncture Council members, but you will need to check with your own. BAcC maintain a list of the current status here.
